  1. Great grandpa gift! I bought this for my grandfather for Christmas. It didn’t fail as a gift at all. My grandfather who never wants anything, always has a quench for new knowledge. This book worked perfect. And for the first time in my 41 years he didn’t complain that I bought him a present.

  2. Entertainment I love this book. It is full of things you don’t need to know but are interested to learn when you read it. The best part is that you can read it over and over and still not absorb all of the useless information it contains. Simple entertainment.
