I must confess to you now, it was filled with trivia in all shapes and sizes. So obviously when this delightful book fell into my hands I was giddy with joy and proceeded to read it from cover to cover. If you enjoy trivia like me; then have a read of this review.

My review: For geography graduates like me, this book is quite the crazy title that gets all cylinders firing!! I literally jumped for joy when I found it! Filled with maps and quirky facts about various places and famous landmarks around the globe, I can truly say that Gary Fuller was able to fill in much of my own knowledge of our world. What really struck me personally, was the extensive research Fuller had undertaken to help us understand the background behind why these questions came to be. The answers to most of the questions raised were a little bit difficult for me to comprehend at times. Again, this is just my own view on this book. Have a read and give me your take on it!!
