Interesting book, with lots of interesting stories

I would put the book on and listen to it while I worked, or cleaned up the house. The hundreds of short facts are almost all interesting, so it was a fun book to listen to. And now I can annoy my friends and family with all these facts!

A book full of "believe it or nots"

Any additional comments?

This book reminds me of the old "Believe it or Not" segments. Granted this book is generally more "scholarly" than stories of bee beards and people who type every number between zero and a million, but it is basically a book of very short interesting factoids. I was not always convinced that the author's facts were exactly right. In some areas where I knew a little about the topic I found myself skeptical about the complete accuracy of his statements. But, I did manage to finish the book. If you like this sort of random bits of information, this is one of those books well suited for the short commute when you just don't have time to really get wrapped up in a plot.

This was very easy to listen to and extremely interesting. The facts contained within were excellent. Can wait to listen to the sequel 'Now I know more' . My young son also loved this as his brain is a sponge for facts.

I would imagine there is a lot of work goes into a book like this, and appreciate the authors time and effort to bring this kind of information to people. I hope there will be more in the future. Until then I will subscribe to the daily emails. Big thanks Dan Lewis and to all involved.

Some interesting pieces but largely Americana

What did you like best about Now I Know? What did you like least?

I enjoyed the style of the book and the narration, and there some very interesting pieces of information, but I found the overwhelming bias towards the USA (politics, sport, economy, history, popular culture) quite boring. A lot of the chapters mean nothing to a non American. Now I know, but I didn't want to know in the first place.
