The Essential Book of Useless Information

Reviewer: Kelsey
Author: Don Voorhees
Format: Paperback
Pages: 257
Rating: 10 out of 10

Summary (Did you know that Kristen and I use Goodreads?): More facts! Less substance! The newest entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling Useless Information series.

The useless information never ends in the newest, most crucially meaningless entry in the Useless Information series. This latest cornucopia of amazingly pointless facts and figures will have trivia buffs marveling at all the things they never needed to know.

My Thoughts: This book is great. I found it so entertaining and so informative. The facts aren't stated in some boring list format like something you would have to learn for school. The facts are sorted out in an organized way, sure, but most importantly they are hilarious. The author sometimes adds his two cents in the form of jokes. How they are worded is funny too. Actually, even most of the facts themselves are funny. Are you getting that this is a funny book because I feel like I might not be clear enough.

The one problem I had with this book was that I felt the need to share all the information with other people. Of course, this could be bad if those people don't want to hear about it. I often caught myself repeating the facts to those around me. I recommend reading it with another person. 

In Conclusion, I now know way more about some things than I want to, like some animal mating habits for example. I loved this book and will probably read it again so that I can make sure I absorbed all the information it contains. It's great to read in little pieces or all at once because the sections are split up but flow well. I recommend that you read it if you enjoy knowing useless information about random things like I do.
