Fun book and might learn a few trivial things

This was a "light" and "fun" book full of trivial facts. Certainly not heavy reading. Just trivial, interesting (if you didn't know) and fun.

(I am horrible at reviews)

Now I am wiser

This book made the time fly. Each topic is just the right length, narration is clear and soothing and I am wiser now!

Fantastic

Loved it. If you are in to facts read by the dulcent tone of Mr. Whistler's voice this is for you.

Fantastic

Brilliant easy listening for just relaxing with. Lots of facts and things and Simon Whistler has an easy inoffensive voice that washes nicely over you.
