Not read well

The speaker mispronounces words so often, that I question if the book can be taken seriously. Really, if produced so poorly can I expect to believe these far fetched facts?

Not lost for words

I've found that a lot of conversation I've been having recently I think of something I heard from here and can chuck into the conversation. Makes me seem like I mknow more than I do and it gets a laugh so win win!

Great!

Great audio to play at the background while doing other stuff, especially now during these quarantine days. Nice narrator, topics are very varied, a bit of everything.

Some unintentional laughs

There are lots of really strange pauses and mispronunciation in the delivery, though not enough to ruin the book. My absolute favourite reading faux pas was reading "Kim Il Sung" as "Kim Second Son" But on the whole, these are all relatively minor.

As for the book itself. First thing, be warned, there are a number of repeats of facts. I couldn't say how many without a electronic copy of the book and lots of spare time on my hands.

While listening I heard a number of possible mistakes, some of which I checked out. So here are some "spoilers". Let's start with a nit-picky one: Greek statues actually are white. While they were colourful originally, they are white now.

Further:
* Humans do NOT only use 10% of their brains.
* It is NOT illegal to die in the British houses of parliament.
* Brazil DOESN'T have a national animal so it can’t be the Jaguar. Many websites do give the Jaguar as the national animal, but it does appear to not be true.

I was most amused by 2 things. The reference to Buzz Aldrin's maiden name, as opposed to his mother's maiden name. And saving the best for last: talking about a place named "Cape South Town Africa" Perhaps "Cape Town, South Africa"?

Random Facts

Some really random facts in here for sure. Don't know if I'll ever have any use for them but they're entertaining, interesting to think about, and funny to bring out in any dull conversations which always get weird looks but a laugh at the end.
