Description:

A book promoter suggested this book to Asimov and promised him he wouldn't have to do much work. 'Uneasily,' he wrote in I. Asimov, 'I agreed, provided I was not to be described as the author of the book and that every last member of the research team would be named in the front matter (p. 446).' First edition (stated; NB: while Grosset and Dunlap is best known as a reprint house, this is an original book for them and the first edition). Very good in a very good dust jacket. The flaps were once glued down to the pastedowns; they've been unstuck but there is glue residue remaining. Inscribed by Asimov, 'To Linda Davis, Isaac Asimov. 18 Aug 87.'. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Collection of unusual facts.

Review: Isaac Asimov was unquestionably one of America's greatest scientific writers--from his mind came the awe-inspiring Foundation trilogy and the classic I, Robot. It hardly comes as a surprise then, that the brain of Asimov was overflowing with facts, statistics, and millions of trivial tidbits. His Book of Facts comprises 3,000 of these little information snippets. To organize this wealth of data are distinct subject areas--ranging from chapters titled "Art" and "Medicine" to more obscure ones such as "Salty Facts" and the amusing "Strange Rules, Laws and Customs." Did you know, for instance, that the Tinguian people of the Philippines have a very unique way of kissing? They put their lips close to each other's faces, and then quickly inhale. Or that in the Middle Ages the Europeans put their disobedient animals on trial? Well, you know now! Asimov's Books of Facts immerses the reader into a humongous vat of information. Asimov feeds the brain. --Naomi Gesinger
