Our readers asked for it, and here it is: Uncle John''s first collection of his greatest short facts and quick reading material. Open up to any page of Extraordinary Book of Facts and you might find a list of, say, obscure words (''exocannibals'' eat enemies; ''indocannibals'' eat friends). Flip to another page and there''s a whole bunch of facts about how long things take (a yak''s gestation period: 258 days). On another page: kid facts (the average four-year-old laughs 400 times per day; grownups, about 15). So be smarter and laugh a lot more with this amazing collection that features thousands of great facts, plus word origins, myth-conceptions, conspiracy theories, andmuch, much more! Arranged for simple and speedy reference, this book is the perfect companion for trivia buffs and knowledge junkies everywhere!
