Book Review - The Ultimate Book of Randomly Awesome Facts
About the Book Hundreds of lists--thousands of facts!
There's a new online sensibility, and kids are encountering it every day. It's the "flipped" world of facts--facts presented as instant, cool, unexpected. And in this world of BuzzFeed and YouTube, a big focus of the new factual sensibility is lists.
WHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW is a book of best-ever lists, with a completely different look and feel to reflect today's digital world. The lists cover topics from science and technology to history and pop culture, and every one of them has a hook. The information appears random, like it's from an Internet search. But in-depth research and expert writing mean that the book is filled with the most important, most engaging, most up-to-the-minute facts. This is reference reinvented, with supermodern lists, and a supermodern visual presentation to match.
My Take on the Book
If you love to learn thing, this is a great book that will let you explore a little bit of everything. Filled with amazing pictures, facts, figures and more, you can get your kids ready to be seen as the experts and truly amaze their friends as they rattle off these great facts to one and all. The book is a great collection of eclectic lists and we loved going through each!
