Gary Fuller's entertaining and engaging guide enhances geographic know-how with good, old-fashioned fun, using trivia to open up new worlds of knowledge for all readers. Often dismissed as unimportant, trivia here highlights issues that are far from trivial, pondering, for example, what peaceful country requires citizens to keep guns in their homes? what continent contains at least 75 percent of the world's fresh water? and why aren't New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Philadelphia the capitals of their respective states?… (mere)

I read this book faster and faster - skimming it towards the end. Trivia is what it is intended to be and indeed that it is what this collection is, though without any discernible form, a bit of a jumble. Ill stick to Trivial Pursuit, thank you. ( )

There is something about the tone of some books that just grates. This is one of those books. There are certainly a lot of interesting things here, and it is an easy read, but the randomness of it all puts me off. In addition to geography, Fuller pretty much sticks in any random thought that comes into his head--such as the cause of the Civil War (it was slavery, Dr. Fuller!)--and despite his impressive credentials as a geographer, weird non-facts creep in. The most annoying is his contention that Kalmykia, an autonomous part of the Russian federation, is a country, and therefore the only Buddhist country in Europe! What nonsense. It is no more a country than California, Quebec, or Chechnya. With stupid "facts" like this one, how can a reader really trust anything in the rest of the book? My advice: Steer clear. ( )

Collection of diverting facts about obscure geography. Not much of a connecting theme otherwise, and the omission of some kind of wrap-up was a little jarring. Still a fun, quick read. ( )

Lots of interesting geography information. ( )

Entertaining geography trivia, with related digressions. Since the chapters are short and self-contained, it's a good choice for an airplane, which is where I read it. ( )
