The most inconsequential entry yet in the #1 New York Times bestselling series proves that information is overrated.

? Which game show host previously worked as a garbageman.

? Which day of week is the most popular to rob a bank.

? Which millionaire loaned his kidnapped grandson ransom money at 4 percent interest.

? Which country once had a dog for a king.
