FACTUAL REVIEW: The Bumper Book for the Loo - Mitchell Symons

Release Date: 08/11/12


When Mitchell Symons wrote his extraordinary bestsellers "This Book, That Book and The Other Book" - all neatly combined in one sensational volume, "The Ultimate Loo Book" - he was judged by many to be the King of Trivia. Now, in "The Bumper Book for the Loo", this supremo of weird and wonderful, astonishing and inexplicable facts, figures, stats and stories returns with a super selection of trivialistic treats - each one more remarkable and, yes, even more trivial than anything he's compiled before. For example, did you know that...The first alarm clock could only ring at 4 a.m...There was once an internet rumour that Belgium doesn't exist...In 1830, King Louis XIX ruled France for just 15 minutes...All mammals have jaws but only humans have chins...Peru has more pyramids than Egypt...Packed to the rafters with all manner of useful and useless information, lists of the biggest, the smallest, the best and the worst, "The Bumper Book" for the Loo is a hilarious compendium of endless delights - and a hugely entertaining, unputdownable feat of nonsense!


There are books you like to read on the road, there a story’s that you love to read before bed, but when you’re caught short and a little preoccupied, there are times when you want a book to distract you whilst you go about your business within the bathroom. This is where the new Mitchell Symon’s books comes to hand quite well. (No not to use as Loo Roll.)

It’s full of weird and unusual facts, has some fun illustrations and when you add the way that these weird little bits of information stick in your brain will allow you to be the toast of the mundane at any celebration you attend. All in a good bit of fun for all to read and a wonderful way to pass the time. Great stuff.
