Whisking us from the coffeehouses of seventeenth-century London to the web age, Jennings chronicles the ups and downs of the trivialities fad: the quiz ebook explosion of the Jazz Age; the increase, fall, and upward thrust back of television quiz exhibits; the nostalgic campus minutiae of the Nineteen Sixties; and the Eighties, whilst Trivial Pursuit® back made it stylish to be a know-it-all.

But specifically, Brainiac is a love letter to the lifeless truth. What marsupial has fingerprints which are indistinguishable from human ones?* What planet has a crater on it named after Laura Ingalls Wilder?** What comic had the misfortune to be born with the identify “Albert Einstein”?*** Jennings additionally ponders questions which are a bit extra philosophical: What separates trivialities from meaningless evidence? Is being reliable at minutiae a mark of intelligence? And is minutiae only a waste of time, or does it serve a few not-so-trivial goal after all?

Uproarious, foolish, attractive, and erudite, this e-book is an impossible to resist occasion of nostalgia, interest, and nerdy obsession–in a be aware, trivia.
