Description
Compulsively readable and a veritable bottomless well of trivial facts and conversation starters, this book by Mitchell Symons—one of the writers of the first British editions of the game Trivial Pursuit, as well as a longtime newspaper columnist, broadcaster, and researcher—is a numbers-first look at the world. For example, 9 is the number of times brighter that the full moon is over a half-moon, 100 is the number of times lightning strikes the earth every second, 590 is miles of hair the average human grows in a lifetime, and 666 is the sum of all the numbers on a roulette wheel. Ranging from art and literature to flora and fauna, music and television, and love and marriage, here are more than a thousand fascinating numbers in our lives.
