    "Good Trivia Knowledge"

    If you're a fan of things like trivia pursuit, you'll like this book. It's not very engaging or narrative though so it's impossible to stay focused on listening but if you let yourself daydream a little and just pick up facts here and there as you're listening, it is interesting. I tend to doubt some of the accuracies though.. so take it with a grain of salt.

    Story
    "Better as you get used to it."
    Would you listen to Knowledge in a Nutshell & Knowledge in a Nutshell on Sports again? Why?

    I like history and interesting true stories. I was a little nervous at first when I first started listening to this book, but once I settled in and really starting getting used to the format, this book is great. I highly recommend this if you want to learn some interesting facts and very short stories.
