Show synopsis The Random House Trivia Encyclopedia has over 10,000 entries, listed alphabetically by answer, plus hundreds of lists (the 6 wives of Henry VIII; the original 31 Flavors of Baskin-Robbins ice cream). It also has a full index for finding the answers you're looking for. What sets it apart is its organization; most trivia books are question-and-answer format, and while they are interesting, there's no real way to know what they contain, and they tend to focus on more narrow subjects. Stan Newman and Hal Fittipaldi have written the first trivia encyclopedia to be published for 25 years. Fred Worth, the pioneer, made the mistake of never indexing or updating his classic. That means that The Random House Trivia Encyclopedia is unique on the market today. And it's amazingly wide-ranging in its scope -- from pop reference entries on movies, TV, contemporary music, and sports, to facts about history, science, literature, and classical music.
