Publisher Comments:

Find out what millions of trivia lovers already know: Uncle John is your #1 source when it comes to throne-room reading entertainment. This book celebrates the very best articles from the BRIs first ten years--plus 150 all-new pages! As always, the contents are divided by length: short articles for the reader on the go, medium articles if you have a few minutes to spare, and the extended sitting section for those truly leg-numbing experiences. Read about . . .

- The origin of Twinkies

- Who invented the Hula Hoop

- The untold history of the Three Stooges

- Space toilets: where no man has gone before

- 1876: the year they stole the presidency

- The FBIs "Ten Most Wanted" list

- How to start your own country

- Celebrity imposters

And much, much more!
