Review: Random Illustrated Facts by Mike Lowery

Sana Bakkoush’s love for arbitrary science facts stuck with me when I stumbled upon this collection. Just like the title suggests, this book is a completion of random illustrated facts set around history, science, animals, hair, food & drinks, and wraps it up with every day things.

I learned a lot of new information that left me both awestruck and eager to learn more. Plus, the facts in here are all great conversation starters.
However, I do wish that names were used when talking about a specific person accomplishing something instead of saying “X women” or “Y man.” Being more specific (when historically possible) wouldn’t have hurt at all in this collection.

But on a more positive note, here are some of my favorite newly acquired facts:

All in all: Random Illustrated Facts kept me invested and on my toes from start to finish. And as I mentioned in my previous read, I found the book that reset my hope in humanity (just a little bit, though).
