AND YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW A LOT ABOUT THE GREAT STATE OF NEW YORK
May 1, 2018
Even tough, having been born and raised in New York City and still living in the New York City metropolitan area for the past 67 years I found this endeavor by the author, Bill O’Neill is to an enlightening and educational reading experience not only about New York City, but the entire state of New York.
Remember, it’s impossible for a trivia book to mention every tidbit of such information; and while some trivia books might simply state items of trivia for a particular topic one after the other, Mr. Bill O’Neill attempts to render his readers something more meaningful about some of the items he’s decided to include in this endeavor for each of the six chapters in the book. The author moves on to provide some additional random facts regarding the chapter’s topics, culminating with the testing of his readers on what they’ve just read in each chapter.
For wanting to educate everyone [including native New Yorkers] with interesting tidbits about the Great City/State of New York, tidbits regarding items millions of people have either used regardless of where they live in the US or have heard about round the world; I’m giving this book and its author 5 STARS.
