by John Mitchinson,
The Book of General Ignorance is the trivia, humor, general knowledge and fun facts book which provides us the correct information about the facts. John Mitchinson and John Lloyd are the authors of this impressive book. John is the bestselling author in the New York Times. He digs deep with his coauthor to reveal the truth behind the wrong facts. While growing up our mind saves thousands of flawed facts, misunderstandings, and misconceptions. We all believe in the myths and facts that are told to us about certain people, places and items. John did a magnificent job underneath the truth behind our history, science, nature, literature, and others.
This book offers you the correct information about things. We are told that Magellan was the first person who circumnavigates the globe. Henry VIII had six wives, baseball was invented in America and Mount Everest in the tallest mountain. All these facts are wrong and John proves them by providing the correct information. A chicken can live two years without its head. The chameleons change their colors due to their emotional states and it has nothing to do with the background. All this and much more interesting fact you will find out in this guide.
