American Trivia Quiz Book from the Author: Richard Lederer. Just How Much Do You Know About Our Great Nation? Recent surveys reveal that more Americans can name at least two members of the Simpsons’ cartoon family than can name the first four American presidents in order. Richard Lederer and Caroline McCullagh have written the American Trivia Quiz Book to make your knowledge of our nation’s history at least match the nation’s knowledge of The Simpsons. The American Trivia Quiz Book brims with fascinating facts about the people, places, and events that make our nation great, with a series of fun and informative quizzes on subjects ranging from Columbus to baseball. There are questions about presidents and first ladies, explorers and inventors, heroes and poets. Impress (and stump) your friends with your knowledge of all things American. In the process, you’ll find our national gifts of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to be even more precious. Richard Lederer, Ph.D., is the author of more than 40 books about language, history, and humor, including his best-selling Anguished English series and Presidential Trivia and American Trivia. He has been profiled in magazines as diverse as The New Yorker, People, and the National Inquirer, and is founding cohost of A Way with Words on public radio. Dr. Lederer’s syndicated column, “Lederer on Language,” appears in newspapers and magazines throughout the United States. He has been elected International Punster of the Year and Toastmasters International’s Golden Gavel winner. Caroline McCullagh, coauthor of American Trivia, earned a master’s degree in anthropology from the University of California, San Diego. Her diverse writing projects include four novels, a cookbook, a student opera (under the auspices of San Diego Opera), and nine years of monthly garden book reviews for the San Diego Horticultural Society.

Do you know the secret identities of Ivanhoe’s Black Knight*** or Men in Black’s Agent M****? In this ultimate book for trivia buffs and other assorted know-it-alls, the 365 entries feature “This Day in History” factoids, trivia quizzes, and questions categorized by Jennings as “Easy,” “Hard,” and “Yeah, Good Luck.” Topics cover every subject under the sun, from paleontology to mixology, sports feats to Bach suites, medieval popes to daytime soaps.
