In A Nutshell:
I originally planned to swap this book but after I started reading through the trivia questions, I do not want to part with it.  There are some questions that are just fun or funny.  There are some questions that are more serious and historic.  Overall, this book is a lot of fun to read and even better to read with a group of friends or family.
