Book Review: Who Knew: Questions That Will Make You Think Again by Sarah Herman

Who Knew: Questions That Will Make You Think Again by Sarah Herman is a non fiction book that answers many questions you might not think to ask. Why do elephants have such big ears? What's the difference between fog and mist? Who invented sliced bread? Be the smartest slacker in the break room, the brainiest guest at the wedding, and the cleverest cat at the cocktail party. Filled with gems of wisdom to dazzle your brain cells, there are plenty of tales to surprise and delight even the most ardent trivia fan. From the plagues of the Middle Ages and the rules of Roman architecture to culinary customs, presidential assassinations, and the contents of James Bond's glass; it is all covered. There is also a fun quiz at the end of each chapter to prepare you for mastermind status in no time.
Who Knew: Questions That Will Make You Think Again is a fun collection of information that might take some readers by surprise. I love to learn this type of odd facts, so knew some of the information already, but still enjoyed the read. I think the organization and presentation of the facts was well done, and I enjoyed the time spent reading it. I think this is a great book for those that need something to read in short bursts, and for those that like to know the odder and more eclectic bits of information that has no actual impact of your life, but is just cool to know.  Trivia masters, Jeopardy watchers, and know-it-alls like myself will find value in the read and share the tidbits with others.
