In 1987, Uncle John found himself stranded on his throne with nothing to read. Thatís when he came up with the idea to launch a series of trivia books specifically tailored toward his fellow bathroom readers. He gathered together the best trivia writers he could find and charged them with the task of combing the worlds of science, history, sports, politics, and pop culture to compile dozens of interesting articles that could be absorbed in just a few minutes. Now, with more than ten million books in print and a membership base topping 40,000 loyal readers, the movement begat by Uncle John is stronger than ever.
