‘The Importance of Being Trivial – In Search of the Perfect Fact’ by Mark Mason is a journey book, and one that goes on so many tangents that you can’t help but enjoy it.
Mark begins his quest for the perfect fact at a pub quiz (down the road from where I live), and the quest ends a million (metaphorical) miles away. This book, and his follow up, Walk the Lines, really set Mark apart as a storyteller and a man who understands the value and price of knowledge. To enjoy this book is to reflect, and to learn to love life that little bit more.
You can buy the book and find out more about Mark on his website.
