‘Marriage ceremonies were generally absent in the ancient world’ – Fun and odd facts!New author Jordan Moore steps onto the Trivia stage with a nod to providing interesting reading material while passing the time at home, In this easy to read (and absorb) book, Jordan offers a cascade of facts that provide not only entertainment but also so educational topics!Providing an overview of the topics of interest in this book, Jordan outlines his content in the Introduction – ‘As the title indicates, this book takes you on a fun-filled odyssey through just about every nook and cranny of this planet, and far beyond, to bring you 1,572 factoids that will make you scratch your head and give you some fodder to impress your friends and family at your next gathering…Maybe you’ve wondered how some seemingly unmedical things, such as alligator dung, became medical prescriptions. Or perhaps you’ve wondered how marriage became the institution it is today. And maybe you’ve considered how crypto currency began, or how it works…’ And if that tasty intro doesn’t convince you to explore this fascinating book, add in facts about pop culture, sports facts about athletes, strange hobbies, meteorological facts, and even a few facts about weapons of warNot only is the book entertaining – it is also very instructive. Jordan presents his facts in categories, each fact is short in length and offers a check box to let you know you’ve absorbed that one, and moves along at a pace that is entirely up to each reader. For those who are simply looking for solid entertaining reading to while away the hours, welcome to a field expert! Highly recommended – especially during these times… Grady Harp, July 22
This Is An Excellent Interesting Book.This is an excellent interesting book. I liked this book because I learned some information that I did not know before reading this book. I read this book for my personal pleasure and personal knowledge. Some of the interesting information that this book mentions include the following information: Airplane emergency oxygen masks have only about 15 minutes of oxygen. From 1700 to 1712, Sweden used its own calendar which resulted in a Feb. 30, 1712. Sweden went back to the Julian calendar in 1712. Puntas Arenas, Chile is the Southernmost city in the world with a population of over 100,000. It currently has over 127,000 people. With a population of over 300,000 people, Murmansk, Russia is the largest city in the world North of the Arctic Circle. When a lot of people think about Australia, they think of deserts. However, not all of Australia is desert terrain. Forests cover about 19% of Australia’s land.
They are indeed interesting factsIt is a great book. When you don’t have much time, you can quickly read 10 or 20 pages and pick up so many interesting facts or sit and read all of it at one time. I find it hard to figure out where so many fun facts are discovered. It is mind boggling what you pick up when you read this book. Get it and enjoy.

Another winner from the mind of Bill O’Neill.I know that his name does not appear as the author but O’Neill has a hand in there somewhere. I love his work. It is always enlightening and entertaining. I learn something new each time I open one. I can’t wait for the next one. What a great way to relax. Just kick back with a cold drink and forget about the pressure of modern life. Keep them coming.
Another fun trivia book!What is not to dislike about Trivia? I am a teacher, and at the end of every class I pick up one of Bill’s books just to read a factoid or two. More often than not, my students ask for one more after the bell rings. That says it all.
Fun “facts”It was an entertaining read. I base the word facts on the definition that it is something that can be proven true or false. But the main point is that it was entertaining.
