5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging; a definite buy for anyone who loves to laugh., 27 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Surely Not: True or False (Paperback)
There are few books out there that combine such a high level of playful intelligence with down-to-earth humor. The result, "Surely Not," is a smart, and delightfully entertaining collection of facts and fiction. This book of trivia is written in a format which is amusing to read by one's self, or with others to test their knowledge about life's many unknown and interesting facts.
To explain the basic premise of the book, the authors, Mark Bastable and Bill Dunn, present short bits of humorous and sometimes shocking information. The question to ask yourself or others is, is it true, or is it false? You'll be surprised by the answers! Slip it into your pocket and read it on the train for a good laugh on the way to work or pull it out and stump your friends and impress them with your knowledge; I guarantee there will be some raised eyebrows and outbursts of laughter. There's something in here for almost anyone you can think of, and the book makes a great gift because everyone can find something in it to enjoy. "Surely Not" covers music, style and fashion, media, language, sex, travel, food and drink, animals, numbers, and much more. Even more amusing is the occasional acerbic aside from the authors as the answers are revealed in the back of the book.
Here's an example of some of the briefer statements that you'll find in "Surely Not": Napolean died of wallpaper poisoning. A duck's quack doesn't echo. Masters & Johnson were both impotent. Is it true, or is it a lie? There's one easy way to find out; treat yourself and buy the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars good for the purpose., 20 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Surely Not: True or False (Paperback)
Just what I wanted as I did not have to search out the type of quiz I wanted as they were all together in one book. The ladies at my Townswomens Guild are enjoying these quizzes very much so mission accomplished. Hope the seller has more books in this vein.
