Description
Don't you find it fascinating that the spices in your lunch once caused countries to go to war? Or that Alfred Nobel became famous not for handing out his eponymous Peace Prizes, but rather for inventing dynamite? Or that meteorites and bits of dust falling from space add some 30,000 tons of material to the Earth every year? More to the point, don't you wish that when someone brings such things up, you had something to contribute to the conversation? Combining essential facts and intriguing details on a broad range of natural phenomena and human activity underpinning the world as we know it, this book offers a unique guide to general knowledge and a double-bushel of conversation starters in 10 sections, each with its own quiz pages.
