Very entertaining!

This is a great book with a variety of facts that are guaranteed to keep the whole family entertained. We used it on our last family vacation as a way to pass the time while in the rental car. I think everyone enjoyed learning a little something. The narration was very easy listening and we all had a good time talking about all of the facts in this book. Great fun!

I think I'm ready to play jeopardy

Definitely a whole lot of facts I didn't know about. It got me thinking that is amazing what people are capable of doing and they are recognized in this book. Their names live on through this book and with the dates that go with it for the rest of history for people to remember.

The more you know...

I enjoy random fun facts. Though most facts I heard has no use in my day-to-day life, they are nevertheless fascinating and make me more appreciative of the history, the breadth of humanity, and how some events shape our modern life. Great fascinating book that will make you put your thinking hat on!

Pub ammo for the dart-throwing elite!

Where I’m from; he who hath the highest amount of trivia, wins the Friday night! Love impressing the boys down the pub with these brilliant facts that you simply would not encounter had you not abseiled down the infinite rabbit hole of random knowledge of your own accord. What a beast of an audiobook. Love sounding like a big shot lol!

A fun listen!

This was a fun download I did when planning a road trip with the family. I was searching for things to do/keep the kids entertained on a long drive. This was one of their favorites. It had the most random facts that we had never even heard of so it was a fun listen! Recommend for those who are in the same situation I was in or for those who just love impressing their friends with all the random knowledge they have!

AN AMAZING BOOK

This audiobook will indeed blow your mind. I learnt new things that I never thought existed. I never knew that someone won two Nobel prizes in the same field and I never knew that Libya once recorded such high temperature. If you want to learn more about this great globe where we all live, you have to get this book and you wont be disappointed.
