From short-lived celebrity marriages to athlete nicknames, here is a trivia book that eclipses all others. It isn't useless information, nor is it the conventional trivia that you might expect to find anywhere else. In short, it is all the stuff that you didn't even know that you wanted to know. Fortunately we have made it our business to know what you didn't know that you wanted to know in order to include it into this book. Choosing material that we anticipate you didn't know you wanted to know was a significant challenge. We were required to make a distinction between four things: stuff you wanted to know, but knew you wanted to know; things that you didn't know but knew you didn't know and didn't want to; things you didnt' know, didn't know you didn't know, but wouldn't want to even if you did; and most elusive of all, things you didn't know you even wanted to know, but would soon discover that you wanted to, once you knew them. It is this stuff that appears in this book. If there is anything that you feel strongly that you now know you didn't know you wanted to know that isn't here, please let us know.
