This book was a lot of fun. Not something you would necessarily read from cover to cover, but as a "list of lists", it's great to have tucked in the car or on the nightstand for short periods of perusal.

In general, this is a collection of "lists" generated around the theme of things you should know if you want to impress people or seem more intelligent than you actually are. Some entries were more obvious than others, and because it was designed simply as an overview, I did find some entries a little anemic, but overall, it was an interesting and educational read. ( )
