This would be a good pick-it-up-and-put-it-down kind of book (it's just a string of facts) - but I'll admit, I just sat down and read it straight through. That allowed me to enjoy the eccentric thread of logic the authors applied in organizing the facts - they're not sorted by subject or themed in any way. It's just a bunch of things these guys thought were interesting. And you will, too.
It might be a good car-ride book; you really want to share some of these facts as you read them. And you're guaranteed to come away with something new ... even if it's just that armadillos carry leprosy.
