This is a book to keep around and reference when you want to astound a friend or start a conversation! I received a free copy of this book via Goodreads First Reads.

    This book was a Christmas gift from my grandson. He knew I had a curious mind that stored a lot of trivia, and he thought his grandfather would enjoy this book. He was right. It's not the kind of book you read straight through, cover to cover (though I can imagine people who would do just that). I'll explore the Table of Contents, find a subject that interests me, and read the lists contained therein. You can choose from categories like "Conspiracy Theories," "Facts and Misconceptions," Pop Cultu This book was a Christmas gift from my grandson.

I'll explore the Table of Contents, find a subject that interests me, and read the lists contained therein. You can choose from categories like "Conspiracy Theories," "Facts and Misconceptions," Pop Culture," Movies and TV," "Music," "History," "Crime," Religion," "Food," and "Technology and Space," to name a few. The author, Jamie Frater, runs a website called, Listverse.com. As best as I can tell, if you have a personal list of 10 of anything, you can submit it to Mr. Frater. I am not sure by what criteria he chooses to publish lists. My guess is that it is more important that the lists be interesting than true. I say that based on some of the lists in the Religion category (my forte) have inaccuracies in them, and for someone to list about the "Top 10 Unpleasant Facts about John Lennon," is that #5: Talentless sounds more like opinion than fact. But hey, I read it; which is probably the ultimate goal of all the lists in this book. Read this book and you will laugh, scratch your head, be grossed out, learn something, and be entertained. Not a bad way to spend your free time.

    This book would be described more accurately as Jamie Frater's "Book of Mind-Boggling Misinformation, Unsubstantiated BS, Falacies and Other Right-Wing Falsehoods" You should read his site's most recent and horribly-written lists of far-right hate speech. It appears the existance of this site is funded by the American Republican political party. As if our good planet needs more sites such as these!

    Its the internet, in book form! Ever get sucked down the rabbit hole that is the internet? You look something up and that leads to a tidbit of info that you have to look up and that leads to a tidbit of info.......ad infinitum Well this book has all that info, whether you were looking for it, or not. Fun to read in small doses

    Perfect bathroom reading! Each section is perfect for a short read and I keep one in my one and the guest powder room. The topics are most certainly conversation starters and I think I could actually make a little money on Jeopardy! now.

    Thoroughly Enjoyed! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s great for when you just have a few moments to read, or longer. Great for picking up bits of trivia.

    Read as a first reads selection. I loved it! This book touches every interest from music & movies to crime & science to history & outright oddities. There's a little something for everyone here - I read the entire book and my wife is now reading only the parts she's interested in. Some of the info you've heard before, but some will be new. I understand the comparisons to Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, but, beyond the fact that both are trivia books, there is not much the same. This is just what th Read as a first reads selection.

I understand the comparisons to Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, but, beyond the fact that both are trivia books, there is not much the same. This is just what the title says it is...a book of top ten lists. A lot of lists. Each item on each list has an explanation, sometimes just a paragraph, so you learn something about the history or significance of the entry. One of the best lists was "10 unpleasant fact about John Lennon." It was eye-opening in its revelation that he was not really who the media portrays him to be. You may think you know him, but when all 10 items are put together, well...maybe you don't. It's a fun, enlightening read.

    Take it in small doses I was entertained by this book. Had a lot of interesting stories in it. Now I won't say that every story was the whole truth and nothing but the truth, but they held my interest. I knew a few of the stories presented beforehand, but they were funny to read. My family says I am a junkie for bizarre and holy c**p kind of stories. I don't like to get into too much detail as my family says I will say too much about what is to be found in the pages of this book.

I will say that this not a quick reading I mean 717 pages is not something you read in one setting and besides it is broken down into sections to be read over several days. If you like trivia and the bizarre then give this book a try just don't do it all at once. I would say take it in small doses.

    It was okay. Although I did appreciate the more recent information (there are a lot of factoids in here from 2008 right up to the publishing date), I can't really say that I learned anything new. It's also clear to see the major influence that "The Book of Lists" has had on these types of books (there is a subtle flavor of "Bathroom Reader" in here, too), although very few have manage to live up to the original. Frater does have a definite bias which I won't detail too much here, which could be It was okay.

Frater does have a definite bias which I won't detail too much here, which could be a little grating sometimes while reading the book. Overall, it's not bad. I recommend reading the sections about government/political conspiracy theories, as well as speculations that turned out to be true, as well as the sections about strange foods. I'd give it as a gift to someone at my job who I was cool with.

    This was pretty good. I enjoy listicles anyways so I thought an entire book of them would make me happy. The ones in the beginning categories were great (despite some obvious factual errors and political bias) but as the book went on I felt the lists began to get repetitive and really random and jumbled like they were in no obvious order. In addition, many of the lists didn't match the categories. I liked it but I got bored with it by the end. So I started to skim. This was pretty good.

    Exactly what I was hoping for! Lots of fun facts - conspiracy theories, creepy places, spooky ghost tales, weird inventions, unsolved mysteries... if it's slightly wacky, slightly disturbing, less-than-useful but entirely entertaining it's in this book! (: And it's definitely a book to leave out as a conversation starter when you're done reading through it yourself. Win! Exactly what I was hoping for!
