About the book:

If you're a fan of The Book of Lists or The People's Almanac, you'll love this book. (The very accurate subtitle is "History with the Boring Parts Left Out.") Like those earlier tomes, this one attains the very weird status of being a reference work you could read from cover to cover--and will want to. The section on "War" includes the category of "Aerial Bombings of the Mainland United States," and the "Quotebook" includes this apercu (from writer Gershon Legman): "Murder is a crime. Describing murder is not. Sex is not a crime. Describing sex is."
