About the Book

Four pages of b&w pictures come before the Title Page. The title page is counted as page 1, so the first page of text is p. 3. The book is set up in a question and answer format. The "Quiz," a collection of seven questions, is the first section. Following that are the "100 Amazing Facts" of the title, p. 3-15. They are divided into various subject areas. On p. 15-43 is the proof section, where Rogers substantiates his facts. The same subdivisions are used as in the facts section. Following that are various additional facts, pictures, and articles listed in more detail in the "table of contents" section below. Please note, the book itself does NOT have a printed table of contents section. The "Table of Contents" below was compiled from the book's subheadings.
