BALTIMORE (PRWEB) December 09, 2015
How true that each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history? Surprisingly, it is true as represented by the following rulers: King David for spades, Alexander the Great for clubs, Charlemagne for Hearts, and Julius Caesar for diamonds. Jim Nelson’s “The Book” (published by Xlibris) offers this kind of interesting information to readers.
Nelson’s proposition is to read the book; it would be unlikely for one not to learn something, or at least a couple of things. Being an easy read for all ages, “The Book” is considered by the author as more of a bathroom book, which readers shall include in their collection of books.
An example of surprising trivia in “The Book”: Hershey’s Kisses are called that because the machine that makes them looks like it is kissing the conveyor belt.
“Did you even know that bamboos can grow up to three feet in a 24-hour period?” and “How many days would it take for an average snail to travel a mile?” are just some trivia questions this book answers. With almost 400 pages of general information, “The Book” will make a reader an incredible genius.
