Really fun trivia that deconstructs—literally—patterns: polka dots, stripes, plaids, florals, all the way up the scale of sophistication to a brief foray into fractals. This is engaging stuff, and the best part is that you'll never run into the issue of where to use all these good factoids, history, and etymology—just take a look around. Mental-Flossy in scope but well-organized and enjoyable; recommended. ( )
