The dictionary defines trivia as: matter or things of very slight importance, commonplace, or ordinary. Yet anyone who has ever read anything about a favori te sports star, singer, historic figure or celebrity will find that it is ofte n the so-called trivia that makes things memorable about that person or event. Nowhere is this more apparent than in this book. Add the context of the progre ssion of hundreds of parallel lives through the timeline of a pseudo calendar format and it becomes anything but commonplace. This is especially intriguing when coupled with music history. Over 2,000 entries are listed in chronologica l order, covering every day of the year. By combining a calendar format with w onderful photos and illustrations, and an elevated element of trivia, this new kind of to-the-point history in on-this-day format sets a new trend in books f or the instant gratification of 21st-century culture.
