This book includes attention grabbing facts and punchy popular analysis. It is a sequel to the bestselling "50 Facts that Should Change the World". It includes facts such as: there are half a million machine guns in Swiss homes; without Islam Europe would not exist; Europeans are genetically modified to consume more alcohol than the rest of the world; Santa Claus lives in Greenland and he is broke; and Snails are fish according to the EU. This is a sometimes shocking, often surprising, and always enjoyable, guide to the Europe you thought you knew.
