The weirdest, wittiest, wackiest facts and trivia from the Bathroom Reader series are packed into this new volume.

Is there any other single book in the universe with this many awesome tidbits of bite-sized information? Nope. And that's a fact! At nearly 400 pages (with a handy index for your fact-seeking convenience), Wise Up! is a must-have for anyone who likes their information on the go. It's organized into hundreds of topics--everything from sports and entertainment to word origins and science. Here are but a few of the facts awaiting you:

* More women than men talk to their cars.
* The melody for Nat King Cole's 1954 hit "Smile" was composed by Charlie Chaplin.
* Acid rain was first identified and named in 1852.
* What is your buccal cavity? Your mouth.
* There are no skunks in Newfoundland.
* The average Super Bowl party has 18 people.
* When dropped in water, a fresh egg will sink; a stale one won't.
* The average newborn baby spends 113 minutes a day crying.
* Pepper was so valuable during Elizabethan times that it was sold by the grain.
