Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of essential trivia, uncommon knowledge and vital irrelevance which comes together to provide an irreplaceable gallimaufry of information like the hierarchy of witchcraft, the structure of the military ranks and a guide to clothing care symbols. If they're no good, how about a list of countries where you drive on the left, or a nursery rhyme about sneezing? There's nothing quite like it. A great gift for lovers of books and trivia.

Synopsis:

This is a collection of essential trivia, uncommon knowledge and vital irrelevance. The book includes an exhaustive dictionary of smiley faces and other emoticons, details of the structure of military hierarchy and an analysis of poker hands, amongst much other minutiae.
