1000 Things Worth Knowing

Nathaniel Fowler

Book Overview: 

Part almanac, part encyclopedia, part dictionary, Nathaniel C. Fowler, Jr. gives us his idea of important, but sometimes obscure, facts that he thinks should be in our bank of general knowledge. He includes a large section on medical emergency and health. Items are arranged in alphabetical order, so there is no logical presentation, but reference is made easy. Or, it is just interesting browsing, and a glimpse into the world of the early twentieth century.

For 1918, the text's definitions are interesting :)

A quick easy read, some of the information obviously may be a little outdated :) but every once in a while you find an interesting fact
