Review: This was almost what it says on the tin. 1227 facts, probably. Though I must admit I forgot to count them. However, not many of them blew my socks off. Fortunately most of them were at least mildly interesting. The book is exactly short enough not to become annoying. It worked well for me as bedtime reading, and I can imagine it also being well suited for sporadic reading on a commute, or at other times when one has five or ten minutes to kill. Well worth the 20 pence it sells for on Amazon.
