alfred hitchcock's belly button,
This review is from: The Bumper Book of Useless Information (Hardcover)
he didn't have one!
Did you know that?
Did you want to know that?
If you answered yes to the second question, then this is just the book for you.
roughly 390 pages of useless information. the origins of various words, obscure facts about historical figures and celebrities, and things like that.
the book is divided into eighteen chapters, such as sport food and history, and each chapter contains lots of information on the subject that the chapter relates to. all useless. and all so trivial as to be absolutely fascinating.
A fun read. It would be a five star review but the book could have done with stronger editing. there are a few typographical errors, some facts are out of date, and some are repeated. we find in the first chapter that debra winger was the voice of ET. and then fifteen pages later it tells us this again.
but that minor criticism aside, this is still a fascinating read if you like this kind of thing
