Hamptons Beach Read Of The Day: The Book Of General Ignorance

by KRISTIN LUCIANO · June 16, 2009

There is a certain set of "facts" and information that mostly everyone accepts as the truth. These are things you never formally learned, or read in a book but rather by word of mouth. An example of these so-called "facts" are: a goldfish has a three-second memory, if you cut an earthworm in half you get two live worms, and the Great Wall of China is the biggest single man made structure. I hate to break it to you, but all of these "facts" are wrong. Thanks to the The Book Of General Ignorance everything you once thought was true, you will now learn has been wrong all along.

Co-authored by John Mitchinson and John Lloyd, these two John's teamed up and put together 288 pages of pure awesomeness. With this book, not only will you be amused at information you never knew was true, but you will quickly find yourself becoming that "Did you know..." friend.
