Tance with this book As Thoreau is our witnessWhether you are just beginning to suspect you're the possessor of superior acumen or you'd bet your Homeric Greek translation of The Iliad on it this book is an essential addition to any personal libra Eh It was fun to uiz myself on how many of these well known to little known facts I know but a book like this is necessarily arbitrary The authors couldn't possibly cover all subjects and some of the uestions seem needlessly specific while others seem needlessly broad Also I still don't understand the scoring system

    The book was not general knowledge focused but written from the perspective of the USA It is a great concept of a book but I would appreciate a comprehensive global perspectiveStill an interesting read
