I am a sucker for these types of trivia books. I never seem to find them boring, and no matter how many of them I read, I always seem to find several stories that are new to me. While some of the information covered in this book is old news for me, I still found it highly entertaining. When I read books of this nature, I always have to wonder about the legitimacy of the facts. There is a list of references in the back of this book, but who is going to cross check all those facts? Not me. Nope, I will take his word for it, and snicker as I read.
My only real complaint about this book was a slight lack of flow. I like books that are comprised of short articles or vignettes, so that did not bother me. What bothered me was that they were not organized. I would have liked it better if the book had been divided into chapters, like Dumb Sports, and Dumb Leaders. Other than that, I thought this was a cute book, one that is a good discussion piece. Because it is comprised of all these short entries, you can easily put it down and pick it up at a later date. It is the perfect book to keep on your coffee table or your bathroom bookshelf to keep people entertained.
