Description
In this treasury of anecdotes about small, everyday events that have had enormous consequences for history and culture, Phil Mason gives us everything from the birth of Picasso, who would not breathe until his uncle blew cigar smoke in his face, to the career that Fidel Castro almost chose over leadership of Cuba. Also the author of How George Washington Fleeced the Nation and Napoleon's Hemorrhoids, Mason here gives us such tidbits as where Eli Whitney got the idea for his invention of the cotton gin, what day really should have been named Independence Day, the behind-the-scene beliefs of Isaac Newton, and how Japan tried to send disease-laden balloons to the United States during World War II.

"Mason writes well, and readers looking for pithy historical trivia to share with friends will be satisfied."Publishers Weekly
