My Take on the Book
This book is full of interesting information and detailed photographs. The table of contents lists the following areas of content: science and technology, money, pop culture, nature US, and sports. There is an enormous amount of history embedded in the facts listed in this book. It would be a great gift book or one to sit and share with someone too.
I will relate one set of facts I thought was interesting because i enjoy traveling. The Golden Gate Bridge is the most visited national site in the United States. The next four sites that were listed after the Golden Gate Bridge are: Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, George Washington Memorial Parkway, and the Lincoln Memorial. I have seen them all and they certainly are worth putting on your list of places to visit too.
One other fact I thought was interesting too is that the Blue Whale can weigh up to 143.3 tons and can eat up to 4 tons of krill in one day.
