Firstly, if spelling and grammatical mistakes annoy you, then steer clear of this book. The author and editor both seem to be unaware of the difference between:
There
Their
They're

This example is unfortunately indicative of the level of English expertise that resides within this book's covers.

Moving on to the "1000 Interesting Facts":

Most of the "interesting facts" did not interest me.

Some "facts", I would seriously question their validity e.g. "5.5% of North Americans die due to insect stings". Really !!!

Some "facts", as stated, were meaningless e.g "109 of the highest mountains are found in Asia". Think about it. What does that mean? The 109 tallest mountains in the world are all situated in Asia? Asia has 109 high mountains? What exactly is a high mountain and a not so high mountain, anyway?

Other "facts" I could have found interesting, if I had confidence that they were actually correct.

All in all, something to give your kids as a fine example that not everything you read should be believed!

Lots and lots of spelling mistakes. Facts are pretty mundane. Would not recommend . . . . . . .

1.0 out of 5 stars avidreader 29 Dec 2012

This book is really awful. The grammar is incredibly poor and while many facts appear to be true, at least some are not (elephants CAN hear, incredibly well in fact) leaving everything open to suspicion. Furthermore, many facts are pretty well known to any relatively well educated person (fire trucks are 30 feet long--seriously, does this surprise anyone?). I downloaded it for free so I've little to complain about but my advice: spend a dollar or two ( or go to the library) and read something worth while because this is just a waste of your precious time. You can't even use any of these facts to impress your friends since most are either so obvious that you'll bore them to death or something you'd need to research to be sure you're correct (or risk getting embarrassed by your better educated friends).

1.0 out of 5 stars This kind of sucks. 18 Jan 2013

I got this book because it was free. Now I understand why. Most of the facts in it are true. However, the spelling and grammar are absolutely atrocious. This book should not be available for purchase the grammar is so bad. Either a small child wrote this, or someone who knows English as a second language, but is not fluent in the language wrote this. Bottom line, if horrible spelling and grammar, which would make most people question the credibility of the contents of the book, bother you DO NOT get this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good, short read. 28 Mar 2013
By medmagic - Published on Amazon.com
I think that this was an interesting book. It was a good time passer. However, I got the book on prime, and I would not have paid 2.99 for it. It had several typographical errors, similar to thisone. It was almost as if certain letters werejust glued together. Also, a note, hamsters cannot, I repeat cannot, be 200 pounds. It's impossible. Other than that, yeah, it was okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Fun And Informative 31 May 2014
By Michael P. McParland - Published on Amazon.com

This is a really fun book to sit back and read a little bit at a time or just flip through. It has a lot of fun and interesting facts many of which are very surprising to find out. I loved sharing many of the facts I read in this and plan to keep it so I can look back through it from time to time. I highly recommend this book to have for your entertainment and to have and share good times with family and friends.
