50 Things You're Not Supposed To Know Volume 2 is an interesting book, full of trivia that shapes our world. Russ Kick followed the first book in this series with another worthwhile tome filled with facts from "men have clitorises" to "God's name is 'jealous'." Every fact has a couple of supporting paragraphs, but I found especially useful the references listed at the back of the book. Every fact has its own bibliography, so I can research some of then more interesting claims made in depth on my own.
My next book is the collection of Angry Youth comics, What're You Lookin' At? by Johnny Ryan. Comics are a literary genre I've missed out on so far in my life, thanks to the folks at Atomic Books for picking this out for me and broadening my horizons.
