About this title

Synopsis:

A compendium of tests and quizzes on the people, places, and things that helped define the twentieth century contains more than two thousand questions on everything from the hula hoop to Matt Groening

Review:

Who was rock & roll's Lizard King? No, wait, come back--it's not trivia anymore, it's history. English professor Jaime O'Neill intends to help "keep the past from unhappening," and with his wry humor and creative arrangements, he makes it a highly entertaining endeavor. We're not just having fun--we're preserving history! Sets of multiple-choice or fill-in-the-blank questions (more than 2000 of them!) with themes such as "Sex, Drugs, and Rock-n-Roll" and "Morbid Fascinations" engage and challenge us while keeping a constant stream of facts and humor flowing.

Unlike other books of its kind, We're History! isn't afraid to flaunt its opinions. Who was the "slimiest lawyer?" Roy Cohn! Who is the "greatest inspiration to nerds everywhere?" Bill Gates! For all of the giggles to be had, O'Neill may have meant this to be read by a group. As it stands, this is the perfect smarty-pants party book.

(If you're still wondering, the Lizard King was Jim Morrison. You know, the guy from the Doors.) --Rob Lightner
