Summary: Each entry in this book hides one well-crafted fib among a pair of unbelievable truths on everything from koala bears to Confucius to high-fructose corn syrup. Was Cleopatra the last Egyptian pharaoh? Can you really make diamonds out of tequila? Is the platypus actually poisonous? Each page brings more information on the true trivia—and why you might've fallen for the fake fact.

My rating: 7/10.
