Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary Book.. As a teacher, students teach me something every day.. now I can learn about extraordinary things with them each day. I read from the book and with their input into what chapter we read, we find out cool and interesting information together. A recommended read for all teachers!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reverend Tom One of the greatest books ever. Once you start casually browsing through it, you'll start looking around the house and wondering where everything came from and who invented it. You will be astonished at what you can learn. After reading the book, you can go head to head with Cliff Clavin on any topic that involves useless facts.
