    One thought on “The First Book of Seconds: 220 of the Most Random, Remarkable, Respectable (and Regrettable) Runners-Up and Their Almost Claim to Fame”

    1. This would have been better with some levity; there were a few jokes, but mostly it was just factoids. I also didn't bother with the last chapter because I'm not at all interested in sports. We enjoyed the first chapters, but the nature chapter got tedious after a while. Some of the information shocked and amazed me, but other topics made me wonder why that was selected over other available topics. Not bad, not greatjust meh.

    2. “The world’s second largest land animal could fit inside of the world’s largest land animal with room to spare. What are these two animals? Elephants—both of them.” “Quick, who’s that on MTV’s Video Music Awards statuette? You know, the one of an astronaut holding an MTV flag. Need a hint? It’s not Neil Armstrong. First known as the “Moon Man,” it is a statue of the second man on the moon. And the award goes to… Buzz Aldrin.”

    3. A fun, entertaining, easy read (basically a "bathroom page-turner"). Nothing super heavy or deep, but lots of interesting factoids. (Some spelling errors, but nothing super major, and only really towards the end of the book).

    4. Really interesting stuff. From people to science to nature to sports, it has about 200 some pages for 220 facts about the world's second _______. Each a page long, and some not even, short, sweet, and simple. Cool right?

    5. As per the title, covers things that are second in 220 categories. Each entry is one page in length accompanied by a sidebar containing an appropriate graphic and anecdotal information. And, yes, number one is cited.
