Unnecessarily essential

I'm a general knowledge junkie and loved how this book flipped my "knowledge" on its head. Well researched and well presented (read).

I have to work hard at not being that annoying guy at parties now. Hmm, how do I use this information for good and not evil...

My teenagers even listened in and enjoyed it so entertaining for anyone!
