There are a lot of interesting little tidbits in here, and various things that can be expanded on by making additional research. Its a nice little book to peer through whenever and wherever.

I bought this for my grandfather for Christmas. It didn't fail as a gift at all. My grandfather who never wants anything, always has a quench for new knowledge. This book worked perfect. And for the first time in my 41 years he didn't complain that I bought him a present.
