Isaac Asimov’s Book of Facts by Isaac Asimov

This is a trivia book by Isaac Asimov who had thought of Three Laws of Robotics (which now has been put in practical use). The cover was designed for the 2011 edition.

It, again, is quite hard to imagine that there have been eras when the main source for gaining knowledge was books, not the net. And I am correcting its remnant. The tremendous difference between that era and today could be that knowledge now is edited, mashed up, and the mixed information could be deadly?

There is only one way to enjoy the book.
That is to enjoy the gap between the past and the present.

For example, there isn’t so much difference for the energy requirement between the activity of a hurricane for 10 minutes and the nuclear weapon spread around the world in 1975.
Here! It is a world of disarmament, isn’t it.
