cover113750-medium

I received an e-arc of this book from netgalley and this is my honest review.

Original Release Date:

October 31st 2017

Date I Read The Book:

May 2017

My Star Rating:

4 Stars

Official Summary:

Theres is no official summary up on Goodreads – but the title pretty much sums it up.

My Review: (Vague Spoilers)

I have a particularly fondness for random, useless knowledge and a recent trend of requesting these little illustrated books on Netgalley as I’ve been enjoying them. This one doesn’t disappointment.

The facts in this book are a good mix of “things I know but were nice to see because they aren’t all that common knowledge” “really really irrelevant things I didn’t ever need to know” “things I’ve never heard of that were really fascinating that I wish were elaborated on”.

This is a short, quick read. The illustrations are captivating and very well done. The facts short, and so the point, and without extra embellishment – something that others may prefer but I found irritating in certain instances.

I did overall enjoy getting to read this book though.
