(1979)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Some of the world's best reading comes from books like this! Jam-packed with nearly 3,000 intriguing facts arranged in more than 100 categories (ranging from "America's Revolution'' and "Art" to "Women's Rights" and "Words"), this treasure trove of trivia will provide five minutes of totally satisfying bedtime browsing or hours of uninterrupted study; it will entertain and stimulate the imagination, as it slakes the dilettante's unquenchable thirst for "useless knowledge."

Compiled by Isaac Asimov, a recognized expert in science, the Bible, Shakespeare, and other areas, this compendium of fascinating tidbits examines the world from the inside out--illuminating the lives of kings and queens, presidents, scientists, entertainers, and dozens of "just plain folk'' who prove not only that it takes all kinds to make a world, but that it takes all kinds to make it interesting!
