Reviews of Schott's Original Miscellany

Overall customer rating: 5.000
ENFletcher

Interesting and fun

by ENFletcher on May 29, 2014

Interesting and fun compilation of assorted miscellany

Corgi

Really fun

by Corgi on Mar 12, 2009

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.
