1123 Hard To Believe Facts by Nayden Kostov

Goodreads Summary

A compilation of the most interesting and verified facts, suitable for a broad audience. This is the result of years of sifting through history and reference books on a myriad of subjects as well as searching the Internet and paying attention to the news. 

Most trivia books are insufferably boring. This book promises to be different, packed with interesting, educational and fun ingredients; it seeks to entertain as well as challenge. It will provide you with never-ending intellectual ammunition for a lifetime of dinner parties. You will amaze your friends and family by recounting to them that the greatest Chinese pirate of all times was a woman, or that herrings use flatulence to communicate! 

The book will be your strongest ally in combatting social awkwardness and will arm you with plenty of icebreaking pieces of trivia, suitable for any occasion.

My Thoughts

My son and I love random facts.  We are always sharing crazy, weird, or just simply random facts with each other.  So, when I was contacted about reviewing this book, of course I said yes!

I read it during a nine hour trip out of town for Thanksgiving.  It was a great way to pass some of the time and I loved reading some of the facts to my son every few minutes.  Some of the facts I actually had heard before!  However, most of them were new to both of us.

If you enjoy random facts, this would be a great book for you.  I certainly enjoyed it!

*Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
