The first volume, Potpourri: In the Beginning. . ., covered the first three years of the series and was in a narrative style- this book continues from there in expanded form, with major attention to layout and design which incorporates colorful graphics, illustrations, cartoons and pictures.

It contains 135 issues. Ongoing features include Quiz Questions [675], Challenges [135], BIG Questions [135], and web-sites of interest [hundreds]. Throughout, homage is paid to the editors primary muses: Ben Franklin, Robert Ripley and Clark Kent. One wag has said Fox News tells you what to think- Potpourri tells you what to think about. Another said: Potpourri plants seeds and tries to encourage a conversation. This volume also is available in a full-color edition- this one is in 50-shades-of-gray.

The editor has been described as a polymath who is over-schooled and undereducated, with a pseudo-image of an international man of leisure--but you be the judge.
