Item Description...
Outline ReviewSome people -- like me -- enjoy reading books containing lists of peculiar or droll facts. Such books are arguably the precursor of much of the net. But if you find yourself away from your WWW browser, and feel the need to snarf oddities even when offline, you'll be glad to know there's a book in which you can learn that:
  • the average American's vocabulary contains 10,000 words
  • there are more than 40,000 characters in Chinese script
  • in downtown Lima, Peru, there is a brass statue of Winnie-the-Pooh
and, being a poet, my personal favorite from this book is that:
  • one can see the stars during the day from the bottom of a well.

Product Description
Did you know that:
---in 1740 a cow was found guilty of sorcery in France and publicly hanged?
---the principality of Monaco consists of only 370 acres?
---the Mona Lisa has no eyebrows?
---there are ten million bricks in the Empire State Building?
These intriguing facts and 2197 more like them are collected here to delight, entertain, educate and astonish trivia buffs, esoterica experts, information addicts and anyone else with a passion for collecting odd bits of knowledge.
Dip into 2201 Fascinating Facts and you'll be hooked instantly. You'll find provocative, curious and often humorous facts about everything from the body, smoking, sports, and geography to place names, human oddities, weather, royalty, government, fallacies, firsts, fashions and dozens of other topics.
2201 Fascinating Facts will help you settle bets, finish crossword puzzles, amaze your friends. It will supply you with an endless fund of conversation starters---and stoppers. And because you'll be the only one around who knows how many calories there are in the glue on a postage stamp, who invented the parking meter or how many ridges there are around the edge of a quarter, you'll soon find yourself the star of the office lunch group and the life of every party.
Whether you're merely an interested collector of trivia or a hardcore fact fiend, you'll find 2201 Fascinating Facts totally irresistible. It will be a book you'll go back to again and again.

Fun  Feb 23, 2008
Fun facts, but some well known facts. I did not buy this book for well known facts. Worth buying at a low price.
Rating 2201 Facts  Nov 10, 2007
This book is very interesting, I rate this book very high for anyone interested in events and triva.
Facts  Mar 29, 2007
This was one of the cutest books I had ever read. It was educational and quite interesting. It was full of those things that you are curious about but too embarrassed to ask. I have really enjoyed it and have recommended it to several people.
Worthless knowledge is good for me! :)  Nov 10, 2006
I enjoyed reading this book although I wish they had one more up to date. I learned a lot of fascinating facts.
Many facts, but many factoids, too.  Jul 19, 2004
When I read this book years ago, I found the information therein just as the title states: fascinating. But upon further perusing of this work, I began to notice incorrect information presented as fact. For example, the deer botfly does NOT fly at the stated high speed; that fanciful notion came from a quote by etymologist Charles H. T. Townsend. His absurd estimation was proven false by Irving Langmuir.

I've also found information in this book that contradicts "facts" elsewhere in the book. And the statistics cited from years ago are often out of date and inaccurate. I recommend this title only if you are willing to verify some of its information against other sources and have a keen ability to distinguish between fact and fascinating fiction -- however plausible it might seem.
