The Perfectly Useless Book of Useless Information: You'll Never Need to Know Anything That's in This Book... But Read It Anywayby Donald A. Voorhees
Synopses & Reviews
It doesn't get any more useless than this!
The most inconsequential entry yet in the #1 New York Times bestselling series proves that information is overrated.
Your life won't be improved by knowing that...
? Frank Sinatra's mother was a convicted felon.
? Bugs Bunny was born in Brooklyn.
? The average American home contains $90 in loose change.
? It is illegal to use the American flag in advertising.
And there's no good reason to also discover...
? 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.
The most inconsequential entry yet in the #1 "New York Times"-bestselling series proves that information is overrated. No one's life will be improved by knowing that Frank Sinatra's mother was a convicted felon or Bugs Bunny was born in Brooklyn.
