Did you know this...

Billy Crystal's childhood babysitter was the legendary Billie Holiday?

It is physically impossible for pigs to look up at the sky?

The dot above the letter "i" is called a "tittle"?

Would you like to know which celebrities died virgins, or which novel was the first written on a typewriter? Or are you simply looking for some way to entertain yourself in the bathroom? Would you like to know the working titles of the Beatles' songs, or what things were invented by women? Answer "yes!" to any or all of these questions and This Book—like That Book—is the book you've been waiting for!
