5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably thought-provoking!, 8 Oct 2006
By 
This review is from: 50 Facts That Should Change the World (Paperback)
As soon as I saw the headers (1/3 of the world is at war, 30 million people in Africa are HIV-positive, One in five people live on less than $1 a day) on the front cover, I had to buy this book. It gives an insight to reality and made me realise how much I don't know about the world. I was shocked to learn that:

1) More people can identify the Macdonalds logo than the christian cross

2) 10 languages die out every year

3) We're caught on camera upto 300 times a day!

I think Jessica Williams has done an excellent job in writing this book. It's a first step towards factual information and all I can say is "WAKE UP BRITAIN!"

"1) More people can identify the Macdonalds logo than the christian cross"

That's not really that shocking. As horrendous as the McDonald's brand is, it's arguably less destructive and morally corrupt than the Christian church.

Ian, there was no need for this immature comment. Silly-Billy.

I think you are showing your immaturity in responding in this way. Please attack his position rather than falling back on this puerile ad-hom.

I hope this book actually has something more thought-provoking than hose points otherwise it'll be a waste of money. None of those three things are particularly astonishing or that thought-provoking.
