Many facts are just hard to ignore, especially those that are interesting and fill up the innate human curiosity to know more about the world. There are also trillions and more of them, so which facts are important or at least interesting? A good answer is provided by the recently published book, “Really!?” by Steven Elliott.
“Really!?” will whet the appetite of curious learners, students, workers, and almost anybody who wants to acquire tidbits of knowledge that makes them wonder and ponder over the largely unknown world around. Like there is a diamond the size of a planet! “Really!?” is a compilation of a wide range of such trivia that will never fail to amuse, entertain or educate the reader or listener.
Steven has collected facts that others are not likely to know. The topics range from animal and plant kingdoms to astronomy, the human body, scientific inventions, the history of man, famous people, the wars everyone must know about, and the Earth. There are also facts that are strange, horrific, unbelievable, or just plain funny.
“These facts make us who we are. Humans are a curious species, and we all want to know the truth,” says Steven.
Among the collection are facts like the mysterious star KIC8462852, which emits a strange pattern of lights that dim now and then. Could that be some alien civilization at work deep inside the universe!? Back here on earth, everyone should know that there was an age when ‘megafauna’ or large-sized animals ruled the planet.
“I have compiled in this work over 1,200 facts which I found interesting. It is highly unlikely that any reader would know more than ten percent of these. If anyone does, then he or she is better-read than I am!” says Steven Elliott.
An exploration geologist, Steven Elliott, found himself banned from cocktail parties when people discovered his extensive knowledge of facts and trivia. Born in countryside Australia, he attended university in Perth. His curiosity to know more about the planet led him to further research, from which arose the present work. Staying modest about his knowledge, Steven presents this work to arouse readers’ curiosity around the world. Steven lives in Perth with his wife Sally, dog Florence, and cat Smudge.
“Really!?” by Steven Elliott is available from Amazon.
