Charles Reichblum


Charles Reichblum, nicknamed "Dr. Knowledge," has built one of the largest collections in the world of fascinating facts and stories that serve as a source for his Knowledge in a Nutshell book series. Reichblum served as news and sports director of WJAS, Pittsburgh, and taught college journalism. He founded a news service, Century Features, which syndicated interesting facts to newspapers and radio stations worldwide. His real love is finding, researching and writing facts, stories, and quotes that are surprising, amazing, relevant, enlightening, educational, and entertaining that make learning fun. He fulfilled his lifelong dream of creating the Knowledge in a Nutshell series, and says one of his greatest thrills from his books is when readers say, I didn't know that."
