Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Faster than a speeding bullet, more useless than ever before.

The #1 New York Times bestselling series reaches new heights of irrelevance with this powerfully pointless, all-new collection of the things you never need to know.

Do you actually care that...

  • there are three feet of DNA in every cell?
  • Saturn has 47 moons?
  • March is National Frozen Foods Month?
  • in 2010 a traffic jam in China lasted ten days?

    Would it improve your life to know...

  • which movie star wanted to be a funeral director?
  • which state has the most horses per square mile?
  • which dictator was obsessed with Cheetos?
  • what day of the year the most cars are stolen in the United States?

Synopsis:

There are more incredibly pointless and delightfully entertaining things to discover in this new entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

You probably never knew…

• Ronald Reagan is the only president who has been divorced.

• It is estimated that half of the worlds spider species have yet to be discovered.

• November 15 is National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day.

And did you really ever have to know…

• The whiskers on a harbor seal are known as “vibrissae”?

• Modern scholars believe Isaac Newton may have had Aspergers syndrome?

• In the 1920s, Hollywood made twice as many films a year as it does today?

Synopsis:

Nothing you'll ever need to know is in this book

The #1 New York Times bestselling series continues to prove that there are plenty of things in this world no one needs to know about.

Why bother learning that...

* Poland sells a drink called Fart Juice?

* ATMs in Vatican City are in Latin?

* a two-year-old learns about ten new words a day?

* President George Washington checked out two library books that

are now 220 years overdue?

Do you really need to know...

* how many clocks are in the Pentagon?

* which state has towns called Intercourse and Virginville?

* what WD-40 stands for?

* the state with the fastest drivers?
