    Don Voorhees is the author of The Book of Totally Useless Information and Disgusting Things: A Miscellany. A native of Morris County, New Jersey, he now lives in Pennsylvania.
    The useless information never ends in the newest, most crucially meaningless addition to the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

    More facts! Less substance! This cornucopia of amazingly pointless facts and figures will have you marveling at all the things you never needed to know.

    There's no good reason for you to know...

    ? that Mickey Mouse was banned in Romania.
    ? that a company sells bikinis made from salmon skin.
    ? that Brigham Young had fifty-five wives.
    ? that the Romans used to pay their legions in salt.

    But we'll tell you anyway, along with...

    ? where the world's largest ant colony is.
    ? which country invented figure skating.
    ? the name of America's bestselling ice cream brand.
    ? how many muscles make up the tongue.

    • Not the book you think

      This book was great the first time i read it. It is just The Essential Book of Useless Information with a new cover. There is nothing about this book that makes it a Holiday edition except the cover. This book would make a great gift for someone, just don't be fooled by the cover. Gave 2 stars for misleading cover.
