4.0 out of 5 stars Book of Facts 26 Sep 2011
I brought this book for my sons birthday it is a hard back book full of all diffrent facts, it talks about space, places and all sorts, theese snippets are intresting and useful. My thirty year old son likes this sort of reading as you can pick it up and put it down without needing to get involved with the book. The only thing I thought was that the writting was a bit small but I do wear glassess, it did not seem to be a problem for my son he is enjoying telling us what he has learnt. It arrived quickly so all in all very happy with the product.
