Overview

From the creators of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Useless Information-a collection of even greater insignificance.

More useless than ever before! Impress know-it-all friends with this all-new hodgepodge of frivolous facts and silly statistics that no one really needs to know. But honestly, how cool is it to find out that...

• There is a place in Maryland called Monkey's Eyebrow
• Giving yellow flowers is a sign of bad luck in Russia
• One brow wrinkle is the result of 200,000 frowns
• Paper can be made from asparagus

This is the book that will also tell you...

• The meaning of 'mageirocophobia'
• Where it is illegal to kill a butterfly
• Huckleberry Finn's remedy for warts
• What bodily fluid the Romans used as a hair treatment

And much, much more!
