The premise of the book is things your parents told you and whether they are actually true (like "if you get an air gun you'll shoot your eye out"). The audiobook is read by the author. He reads/talks very fast and I found this book only consumable in small quantities. Too much of it would drive you crazy. Also, some of his humor I found borderline inappropriate. Really only recommended for those who care about trivia.

There are so many good facts in Ken's book that I can't remember them all. It is very entertaining and I think it would be a good book to own to reference. Ken does a good job reading it.
