The Trivia Lover's Guide to Even More of the World : Geography for the Global Generation Paperback / softback
by Gary Fuller
Gary Fuller's entertaining and informative guide uses geographic trivia questions as a springboard to learning about non-trivial aspects of our globe.
An enlightening book for all readers, it enhances geographic know-how with good, old-fashioned fun.
Discover who named the kangaroo; where can you find Lakers and Salties; what chili peppers, pineapple, chocolate, and vanilla have in common; where Shangri La was; and who was the most successful pirate in the Caribbean. An inveterate traveler and geographer extraordinaire, Fuller provides extensive background, engaging maps and photos, and thorough explanations for each intriguing trivia question.
Challenging today's global generation to truly get to know their world, his book is a delight to read and an essential antidote to our lack of geographical knowledge.
