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.
