Even though I've known about this series for many years, this is the first time I've read one of the books. I'm very glad that I finally did! There are a lot of fun and interesting things to be found here. What's especially great is that even when there was a topic that I might not have been interested in, it was then only a matter of a few pages before I found another topic that I ended up being very interested in. Definitely a fun and informative book here. I'm happy I read it and I'll now be seeking other books in this series. *I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for a fair review.
Talk about multi-tasking! Read a 500-page book in the time it takes to “use the facilities”, wait to be called in by your doctor, or get through the checkout line. John’s bathroom books are always a joy to read and Uncle John's Truth, Trivia, and the Pursuit of Factiness Bathroom Reader is no exception. What is the one food hated by Guy Fieri? Eggs! Why would anyone want to steal a 10 foot long inflatable colon, an ambulance, or a human toe? Because it was there. Why does your cat keep “gifting” you with dead birds and rodents? It’s trying to teach you to hunt. How about some restaurant secrets? Outback Steakhouse is as Australian as you are (assuming you aren’t Australian, of course). It’s a US company based on the Crocodile Dundee movies. The McRib sandwich’s meat is mainly pork tripe so why isn’t it an American hangover cure like menudo? Uncle John's Truth, Trivia, and the Pursuit of Factiness Bathroom Reader is really in a class by itself. Full of entertaining stories sized by how long you have to read, this book is a perfect way to fit more reading into your life. Plus you’ll have some interesting tidbits to share with your friends, family, and co-workers. 5 stars! Thanks to Portable Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
I've bought the Uncle John's series of books for my grandson and nephews for years so had to check this one out. As always, these books are designed to be read in short periods of time, namely a bathroom trip. They are very amusing and full of information you'll find yourself repeating even if you don't read them in the bathroom. Another great book for somebody's stocking this year.
