this book is awesome!

this has so much information in it. its very, very interesting, and so many of the stories are downright funny, and there are a few that are just odd! it is very worth the credit. and worth the knowledge. I honestly loved almost every bit of inflation in this book!
Who would of known there was a SAND MAFFIA?


Rob Maxwell did a fine job reading this. you can also tell he had a blast doing it.

I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

Fun book

This book is full of fun, interesting facts. It's an easy listen; though, I got more out of it listening in short (10-20 min) stints. The narration is great, too. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Interesting but not for a binge reader like me.

-Story-
This book doesn't really have an overarching story, so I am going to judge it on the merit of the factoids and trivia it contained. In that reguard it was hit and miss, hitting more often than missing fortunately. I would say about an 80/20 split between interesting to forgettable bits. That said I use audible to binge books hours at a time so for a reader like myself who plans on listening to something for a long stretch this particular books style where it gives short bits then moves on to completely unrelated stuff was a bit taxing to get through.

-Narrator-
Bill O'Neill was excellent for his part, for me he was the thing that kept me coming back to listen for another stretch. Total kudos to him for a wonderful performance.

-TL;DR-
Interesting stuff with no real thread between them. Probly good for a short 10-20 minute listen here and there, but not great if you want to sit down and listen to the book for a few hours.

Fun general trivia to start new year

Always nice to get a little trivia in. I especially like books with varied topics like this one. It serves as a good break between other books and I like to use it as a reset while I figure out what I would like to read next.
