Summary

In this nostalgic trivia book, we will revisit every fascinating storyline from the 1990s, a decade of evolving technology and science advances and shocking violence. Hear about monstrous natural disasters, police brutality, abuses of power by government officials, and rioting citizens who fought back against them.

Discover the events that led to the end of the Cold War and the beginning of the war in the Middle East and instability between battling ethnic and religious groups around the world. Read how domestic terrorism made its way into the United States through foreign ideology and homegrown hatred. 

Here are some of the topics we will cover:
 

  • Which Madonna video did MTV reject, and why was her book so controversial?
  • Which two superstar rappers died when they got caught up in an East Coast vs. West Coast rap rivalry?
  • What women dominated the country charts and crossed over to the Top 40? 
  • How did a cult complex in Texas catch on fire and burn to the ground, killing its occupants? 
  • How did a standoff between the FBI and an Idaho militia family end? 
  • How did a Virginia man lose his penis (no joke), and which boxer had his ear bitten by Mike Tyson in the ring?
  • What led to rioting in Los Angeles, and what court case became the "Trial of the Century?"
  • What nations were involved in genocide, and how were they stopped?

This book answers the key questions you might have from the 1990s. You’ll hear gripping tales from tragic moments to soaring victories that brought huge headlines in the 1990s, as well as facts that you might have forgotten.

Are you ready for some nostalgia? Then buy this book and dig in.

The great 1990's recap.

I love this audiobook. Bill O'Neil has really done a great job narrating it as well. The 1990s were the great years of transformation in history, science and technology, and Bill presents each fun fact in a smooth flow.
This book is especially useful and recommended for those looking to relive that significant 'decade', or perhaps just to have some fun story/fact to share with family and friends.

Good for a casual listen

Excellent audio book. I've been listening to this while in the car on short rides to pick my wife up from work and back. Good information here that I didn't know about. I will be looking for the 80s version after this

Guess not only 90's kids remember the 90's....

O'Neill began his Nostalgic Trivia series with a look at the 80's; and now he's back with a look at the 90's. I enjoyed the trivia and facts sprinkled throughout the novel, especially since despite being born in '93, I have very little primary or even secondary knowledge of the decade's most important events (Between being a child and public schooling rarely teaching beyond the WW2 period). So that's pretty neat.

Accuracy: Near as I can tell, he's accurate and isn't obviously biased.

Narration: Miller is consistent as his other titles, no complaints.

Great Read

The Great Book of 1990s Trivia: Crazy Random Facts and 90s Trivia was another great read by Bill O'Neill. This was a great trivia and fact book for anyone who loved the 1990s. This book covered many different topics of the 90s. I loved reading this book and can't wait to read more by Bill O'Neill.

A Snapshot of a Decade

This is a great book to get a snapshot of the 1990s. As a young adult during this time I remember much of what is touched on. I was just beginning to pay attention to more of the world than my little corner of it. A lot happened during this decade and, as usual, Bill O'Neill gives us a great overview of this decade. The information is about the key happenings in the 90s, from music to international incidents. The narration was very well done. Scott Miller reads at a nice pace and helps to keep the information flowing flawlessly to help keep your attention. If you love trivia then you really need to check this book and any of the others by this author.

Today in radio news...

Felt like a radio broadcast you would hear in the car on your way to work or school, very nostalgic. I like how there is trivia after he tells you a bunch of facts, this would be a great listen for trivia night with friends or at a bar. This would be great to listen to on a road trip, not with kids though ha. If you like Nostalgic radio and trivia facts this is pretty straight forward on what it is.

A Fun Look Back at the 90's

The Great Book of 1990'a Trivia was a walk down memory lane. The facts from the 90's were interesting to hear again. Some things I had actually forgotten about. Each chapter was a different year through the decade and I enjoyed the quiz at the end of each one. I averaged about 7 or 8 right answers of the questions asked. It was fun. It was a fun decade. Now I'm ready for trivia night.

Scott miller's narration fits this type of audiobook perfectly. He has a voice that sounds like a radio announcer.

Excellent again

This is the eighth book I’ve read/listened to by this author, and without fail, he has again given us a book full of interesting facts. This was a good rehash since the 1990s were my young adult years and I vividly remember most of the content in this book. I did not really ‘learn’ anything, but a few passages added insight.

This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Scott Miller ) and I would listen to another. I think he narrated this book very well. He spoke clearly and with just the right amount of emphasis.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

Nostalgia

I was barely a teenager when the 90s hit. So I do not remember much of the beginning of the 90s. But it was nice to learn about them. This book was awesome.it was very interesting, and sometimes funny. I love the middle towards the end of the book where I can remember a lot of these things going on. It definitely brought up some memories. I recommend this book.

The narration by Scott Miller was good I would not mind him reading another back to me.

I purposely asked for this bookt so I can review it and leave an honest review.
