Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the creators of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Useless Information-a collection of even greater insignificance.

More useless than ever before! Impress know-it-all friends with this all-new hodgepodge of frivolous facts and silly statistics that no one really needs to know. But honestly, how cool is it to find out that...

? There is a place in Maryland called Monkey's Eyebrow

? Giving yellow flowers is a sign of bad luck in Russia

? One brow wrinkle is the result of 200,000 frowns

? Paper can be made from asparagus

This is the book that will also tell you...

? The meaning of 'mageirocophobia'

? Where it is illegal to kill a butterfly

? Huckleberry Finn's remedy for warts

? What bodily fluid the Romans used as a hair treatment

And much, much more!
