A small book packed with enjoyable trivia (so packed, you may need reading glasses), essential but widely unknown facts, and useful reference.
Choosing three consecutive pages at random, there's:
Portraits on American Banknotes (Woodrow Wilson on the obsolete $100,000 bill), followed by
the Curious Deaths of Some Burmese Kings (half at least peripherally involving elephants, one who laughed to death on hearing that Venice was a free state without a king), followed by
a table of the thicknesses of ice that might be theoretically considered safe for particular loads with the warning that walking on any ice is too dangerous, followed by
I love you in 45 different languages,
American Diner Slang (Adam 'n' Eve = two poached eggs, looseners = prunes), and
the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Though there are few pictures, these charming lists and lessons are cleverly laid out so as to be maximally enticing: irresistible morsels of knowledge.
