    Story
    (106)

    Ken Jennings is here to tell us that mother and father didn't always know best. Yes, all those years you were told not to sit too close to the television (you'll go blind!), or swallow your gum (it stays in your stomach for seven years!), or crack your knuckles (arthritis!) are called into question by our country's leading trivia guru. Jennings separates myth from fact to humorously debunk a wide variety of parental edicts: no swimming after meals, sit up straight, don't talk to strangers, you'll get worms from cookie dough, and so on.

    Kelsey says: "Loved this book!"
    "Great Idea! Jennings needs to slow down!!!!"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am a fan of trivia, so anyone that also enjoys useless information this book is alright. If you can catch anything that the narrator is saying. Everything comes into your ears so fast you don't even understand sentances, paragraphs, or chapters.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ken Jennings’s performances?

    no no no no no no no. he is reading his own book so fast its like he found out he could narrate his own book! cool! I didn't win enough money on Jeapordy, I think ill take all the audbile money myself.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger


    Any additional comments?

    Just buy the book to read at your own pace. Holy Cow!
