This delightful collection of knowledge nuggets is the perfect introduction to subjects ranging from history and science to the performing arts. Learn fascinating facts to impress your friends and maybe even score some extra credit points on tests. Condensed Knowledge provides answers to questions many of us don't think to ask. For instance, did you know the tongue is the strongest muscle in the human body? How about that many of the miracles of modern medicine we enjoy?(like penicillin) were discovered by accident? And how about this one: did you know that cross-dressing has a long and storied history in the theatre? That's just a sampling of the wide-ranging knowledge you'll find here. The editors of mental_floss magazine offer this hip and engaging volume to listeners eager to have their brains filled with interesting facts. John McDonough's exceptional narration keeps the text fun and light. "For the discerning intellect, mental_floss cleans out the cobwebs."-Chicago Tribune
