Uncle John's Weird, Weird World

Review copy received from Media Masters Publicity

It’s finally here - the book that Uncle John’s fans have been asking for: a full-color, illustrated edition featuring the most entertaining articles from the world’s bestselling bathroom trivia series! 

Hundreds of eye-popping photographs add a new dimension to Uncle John’s unique blend of trivia, humor, origin stories, history, science, and oddities. (Goodreads)

My Review:

Uncle John's Weird, Weird World:  Who, What, Where, When, and Wow! is one of those books that you read in small doses so it won't be overwhelming. So many unique, interesting, and yes, weird items in this book!

One of the things that I like about the Uncle John books is that you can pick them up, open to any page, and find something interesting to read! What's different about this book is that it's illustrated. Who knew that pictures would make this series even better?

I wouldn't recommend actually taking it into the bathroom with you because, well, that's weird. But it would be great to read in the living room or before bed! This coffee table book would make a great gift, as there's literally something for everyone inside its pages!
