Good Job Brain
Which came first, Brad Pitt or lasers? Who, what, or where is “shrapnel” named after? And can you really use cheese to tell the future? These questions and many more are answered in Good Job, Brain!, a collection of freaky facts, perplexing puzzles, and quirky quizzes based on the award-winning podcast of the same name.
I can imagine myself bringing this book to several future gatherings to have fun with. There was an interesting segment about Cocktails. I didn’t know a single one (I don’t drink liquor). But then I did a little better when I glanced at another segment about Truth in Advertising. I got 8 out of 10 right. I concluded that I am getting old and can still have pretty good recall when it comes to useless facts.
Not only is GOOD JOB BRAIN! a laugh and a half but it’s also extremely interesting. This book would make a great gift for almost anyone
This book is fantastic! Give your brain a real workout with this book.
