Today I learned that, despite its current prestige, champagne was once used as a shoe polish. I also learned that bubble wrap was intended to be wallpaper, and how very glad I am that that didn't happen. Readers will find this selection of more than 300 "strange-but-true facts you probably didn't know" enlightening, baffling, and extraordinarily amusing. Chock-full of myth-busting bulletins, time-saving tips, and peculiar proclamations, this book will fill gaps in your knowledge you didn't know existed! Of course, the book's layout should be as engaging as the information, so each page sports a different format, sprinkled with quirky illustrations that befit their subject.
