This latest romp through history politics religion and science from the dyno-duo Barrett and Mingo is sure to tickle the fancy of trivia buffs everywhere. Amuse your date impress your boss bore your kids or be the 6th caller to win a pair of tickets to the nose-flute band concert! All because you know that a Twinkie in the microwave will explode in 45 seconds that you have a 1 in 3448276 chance of dying from a snake bite that 342 cases of tea were tossed into the "hahbah" during the Boston Tea Party or that white rhinoceroses are not actually white but grey (you'll have to read the book to discover why). Barrett and Mingo partners in life and crime (er writing) can do a thing or two with random facts and this book ranks right up there. From the time the Wallace family made famous books of lists of one kind or another readers have found fascination--or maybe just food for their obsessions--in books like Random Kinds of Factness .
