This is the third collection of their incredible, fascinating, and utterly trivial findings.

About Author

The Useless Information Society is a group of journalists, TV personalities and other assorted oddbods who meet twice a year to get enormously drunk and swap - you guessed it - useless information...

Contents

Hot on the heels of the sensational success of the first Book of Useless Information, the Official Useless Information Society bring you another essential compendium of everything you never needed but always wanted to know. Were you aware, for example, that apple pips contain cyanide? Or that snails can sleep for three years without eating? Would you like to know why the Japanese developed square melons? If the irredeemably pointless turns you on, then this is the book for you.
