From the creators of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Useless Information comes another fun, foolhardy and completely frivolous, fact-filled book.

The Useless Information Society's latest collection, The Amazing Book of Useless Information , will answer questions readers never even knew they had. From space travel to the history of jelly beans, this wideranging, brain-teasing, and altogether useless book will give readers information to out-trivialize even their cleverest of companions.

Features such fascinating facts as:

- There is a town in West Virginia called Looneyville

- Women can talk with less effort than men

- Lemons have more sugar than oranges

And answers to these life-changing questions:

- What was the Ancient Roman cure for a stomachache"

- What is a "buckle bunny?

- Where is the coldest place in the universe?

This is a bit of a mixed bag. I found the presentation (basically just a list of weird facts) lacking; my mother, on the other hand, absolutely loves the book. There is some pretty interesting information here, but there's also a lot of mundane stuff, too.
