    "Interesting facts, Great Trivia,!"
    If you could sum up Now I Know in three words, what would they be?

    Thought Provoking! (Only needed two) The book is full of obscure facts and thought provoking facts nicely presented. If you are a trivia hound this the book for you.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There were not any characters in the books just list after list of thought provoking facts and of coarse I can't think of a single example to give you right now, (MS BRAIN no short term memory) But I liked all the facts and figures.


    What does Jeremy Arthur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A nice voice if a little montoned in parts, But it was nice to sleep to.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    There were so many it;s hard to pick just one, (Or in short my MS Brain can't remember one right now but as soon as I walk away and stop doing this I will remember a dozen.) There really were dozens of facts that were all cool.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good book that I really enjoyed. Wish I had a better memory to give you more facts. But it was very good and informative. I did find the narrator a little monotoned somewhat, but the book itself was a lot of fun. I truly enjoyed it. .

    "Interesting book, with lots of interesting stories"

    I would put the book on and listen to it while I worked, or cleaned up the house. The hundreds of short facts are almost all interesting, so it was a fun book to listen to. And now I can annoy my friends and family with all these facts!

    Story
    "A book full of "believe it or nots""
    Any additional comments?

    This book reminds me of the old "Believe it or Not" segments. Granted this book is generally more "scholarly" than stories of bee beards and people who type every number between zero and a million, but it is basically a book of very short interesting factoids. I was not always convinced that the author's facts were exactly right. In some areas where I knew a little about the topic I found myself skeptical about the complete accuracy of his statements. But, I did manage to finish the book. If you like this sort of random bits of information, this is one of those books well suited for the short commute when you just don't have time to really get wrapped up in a plot.

    "Bite sized facts"

    This is an excellent book with bite sized (around 5 minutes or less) chapters about various facts. Not interested in the fact currently discussed? It'll pass soon. Not all facts are equally interesting, but they're all amusing one way or another.

    "Fascinating"

    Fascinating list and stories of Trivia!
    I wish there was more information regarding each, but then it IS a compendium of facts and trivia and for those, like me, who enjoy learning why things are the way they are this is a book for you!

    "VERY INTERESTING AND INFORMATIVE."

    This was very easy to listen to and extremely interesting. The facts contained within were excellent. Can wait to listen to the sequel 'Now I know more' . My young son also loved this as his brain is a sponge for facts.

    I would imagine there is a lot of work goes into a book like this, and appreciate the authors time and effort to bring this kind of information to people. I hope there will be more in the future. Until then I will subscribe to the daily emails. Big thanks Dan Lewis and to all involved.

    "Some interesting pieces but largely Americana"
    What did you like best about Now I Know? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the style of the book and the narration, and there some very interesting pieces of information, but I found the overwhelming bias towards the USA (politics, sport, economy, history, popular culture) quite boring. A lot of the chapters mean nothing to a non American. Now I know, but I didn't want to know in the first place.
