Staff Review: "Biggest, Fastest, Deadliest: The Book of Fascinating Facts" by Dan Bridges

★★★★

Dan Bridges' BIGGEST, FASTEST, DEADLIEST should prove to be catnip for all trivia buffs. Bridges' book offers up hundreds and hundreds of fascinating lists on a galaxy of topics including astronomy, sports, history, nature, inventions, foods, entertainment and so on. The information is nicely arranged in chapters on Arts & Artists, Animals, Film, Food & Drink, Music, Places, etc. Here's a sampling of the lists: the world's 10 most dangerous foods; the top 10 most polluted places; the Knights of the Round Table; the top 10 most difficult languages; and, the top 10 world's most smelliest cheeses! Bridges' book is a fun and informative read.
