This is the 28th entry in the series, which remains a solid entertainment for trivia fans in and out of the bathroom. As other books in the series, it is a light and amusing book with lots of facts, strange and odd stories, and trivia. Passages cover various topics and can range from very short to a few pages long. This is part of the Uncle John's tradition of providing reading material based on how long you estimate your bathroom visit will last. Sometimes you need something quick, and sometimes you are going to be there for a while. There is no need to worry about running out of reading material in one visit or two. The book is a bit over 500 pages, so you get a lot of reading material. Though this is a great volume to keep handy in the bathroom, it is certainly a good book for trivia fans or anyone seeking a quick read now and then while learning something. It is definitely a good book to browse.

4 out of 5 stars.
