I found this book to be refreshing change from the various genres I usually read. The book is a wonderful collection of trivial knowledge from the arts we all love: movies, music and television; and the level of difficulty ranges from everyone has to know the answer to this question to I had no idea, which is sure to please practically every trivia aficionado. When it came to the questions regarding television, the author has included both American and British programs [programmes] so be prepared. It came as a surprise to me that I actually knew the answers to the number of questions I did.

The author, I feel, should have arranged the questions contained in the book into chapters/categories instead of the hodgepodge manner he did. Having the answers to each question immediately after the questions serves a purpose, yet, anyone who’s really into trivia would have preferred the questions/answers to have been numbered and placed at the back of the book. However, this would have been quite practical for the paperback edition of the book where it is quite easy to turn back/forth but rather impractical for any e-book edition.

Because of this, somewhat of a quandary has developed here regarding the rating I should give. Since the vast majority of readers will be getting the e-book version, I’m giving this book 5 STARS.  I’ve received a free download from Amazon for this book through the author’s giveaway on LibraryThing and the above has been my honest opinion.
