Hot topics and fun tales to stimulate and entertainAuthor Bill O’Neill has authored many books on Trivia and stands as somewhat of an expert in this field! His topics include movies, football, baseball, wars, rock music, simply random trivia facts and US States. Now with a nod to providing interesting reading material while passing the time at home, Bill offers a cascade of stories that provide not only entertainment but also so educational topics!Providing an overview of the topics of interest in this book, Bill outlines his content in the Introduction – ‘This book will introduce you to some of the strangest facts on the face of the earth. You’ll learn about a Kansas town that people claim is so haunted that many call it the “Gateway to Hell,” as well as an urban myth about a Soviet drilling expedition that may – or may not have – opened a portal to Hell. You’ll learn about historical facts that were more than likely overlooked in your history classes. How Alexander the Great dies, how Cleopatra died, what happened to American Indian leader Sequoya, and the truth about Christopher Columbus’ expedition are just a few of the historical stories you’ll read about…You’ll read about a star that is many times bigger and brighter than our own, what will happen when computers become self-aware, what causes “brain freeze,” and how the government has been actively searching for extraterrestrials.’And if that tasty intro doesn’t convince you to explore this fascinating book, add in stories about pop culture, sports stories about athletes, and even a few true crime tales to boot.Not only is the book entertaining – it is also very instructive. For those familiar with Bill O’Neill’s talent for tickling the brain, this book is a must read – one of his best. For those who are simply looking for solid entertaining reading to while away the hours, welcome to the field expert! Highly recommended – especially during these times… Grady Harp, March 20

Love it!I’ve always been one to watch random history/story videos on YouTube, and this is that but as a book! I have adhd so anything too long will make me loose interest, but the stories are short and captivating enough for me to read several a night and feel satisfied. I look forward to picking up this book every night and reading some fun facts.I feel like the bad reviews are a bit harsh. The book is exactly what the title is, interesting stories for curious people like myself! I love it and I plan on getting more books from Bill O’Neill. If you like random interesting stories, I highly recommend this book.

Interesting truths!So far this book has answered alot of my questions about things that supposedly happened that I’m sure we had been lied about! Reminds me of 1 of my favorite classes back in college where our professor would just tell it like it is…no sugar coating!

Not necessarily for children like I thought.I thought this was a children’s book and bought it for my 12 year old. She found it boring and didn’t get far into it. I have randomly opened it and read about Colonel Hogan and his sexual antics and his making of pornos, their words not mine. Not really something I would talk about at a family gathering like the book suggests.

American and rather uninterestingIm a regular non fiction reader and expected a good read. This book printed by Amazon in the UK is really the antithesis of the title.The stories are very American slanted and none are memorable imo.I regret this purchase
