Waste of Time
Might be mildly entertaining for a third grader. Disappointing and very simple. Dull, boring.

Interesting Little Book
It's an interesting little book on the origin of names for countries, cities, landmarks, animals, planets, etc. For example, "Budapest" is the combination of two cities that were united "Buda" and "Pest." The "bald" for "bald eagle" comes from Old English "balde" meaning white (ah, that explains a lot).

Name Explain Is Fantastic!
If you know of Name Explain on YouTube, you already know what your in for and I assume that if you subscribe to the channel then you know what this is all about. However, if you're just coming across this in your searching for something new and interesting and you're not familiar with the channel, I highly recommend you check both out ASAP. Patrick's videos are endlessly entertaining and informative. This book is like a massive marathon of what's become my favorite content on YouTube. Seriously, if you are in need of interesting things to stimulate your mind and peak your curiosity, then I recommend this book 100%.
