The Totally Awesome Book of Crazy Stories
The Totally Awesome Book of Crazy Stories: Crazy But True Stories That Actually Happened! by Bill O’Neill. This is a paperback book with 209 pages. This is a super fun book to give as a gift. When you are unsure what to give, books of weird but true facts are always a hit. Even when people do not usually enjoy reading, they will have no issue picking up this book.
One of the selling points for fact or trivia books is that people do not need to commit to reading for an extended period of time. They can pick it up and read a chapter or two when they have the time. While reading, they will be entertained or amazed!
The other great thing is because it is a bunch of facts strewn together, they do not have to follow a complex trail of facts, nor do they have to follow and remember a plot. So it does not matter if they read this book over the course of one month or two years!
If your son-in-law is a football fan, you should get him NFL 100: A Century of Pro Football. This is an NFL book with a foreword written by Peyton Manning.

It is separated by individual decades, which is especially useful for people who are fans of a specific time period of the game.
This is a hardcover book with 304 pages. As a coffee table book, this would be fabulous not for only your son-in-law but for anyone who visits his home and sees it.

Haunted U.S. Battlefields
Haunted U.S. Battlefields: Ghosts, Hauntings, and Eerie Events from America’s Fields of Honor by Mary Crain. This book has 168 pages, and it is available either in the Kindle edition or a paperback.
