Futility Closet: Greg Ross read online review & book description:

For nine years the popular website Futility Closet has collected arresting curiosities in history, literature, language, art, philosophy, and mathematics. This book presents the best of them: pipe-smoking robots, clairvoyant pennies, zoo jailbreaks, literary cannibals, corned beef in space, revolving squirrels, disappearing Scottish lighthouse keepers, reincarnated pussycats, dueling Churchills, horse spectacles, onrushing molasses, and hundreds more. Plus the obscure words, odd inventions, puzzles and paradoxes that have made the website a quirky favorite with millions of readers -- hundreds of examples of the marvelous, the diverting, and the strange, now in a portable format to occupy your idle hours.

  • Great read.

    By Sherief Farouk
    A series of bite-sized interesting factoids. Fun to read in long sessions on the iPad or while waiting in line for my coffee on the iPhone. Good use of ePub links, too. Only cons are minor formatting issues but they're certainly not worth losing a star for. Highly recommended.
