How to Drink Tea

How to Drink Tea

Author: Stephen (Author) Wildish Format: Hardback Release Date: 17/09/2020

Can't we all just get oolong? We are a nation of tea drinkers. 84% of Brits drink tea every day, and we get through 100 million cups daily. When a survey asked us what the country's national emblem should be, the most resounding answer, with 32 per cent of the vote, was a cup of tea. And yet... most of us are doing it wrong. Enter tea-drinking expert and infusion connoisseur, Stephen Wildish. His complete guide to the fine art of tea includes: brewing guides for the proportionally challenged; simple to follow but desperately important rules (such as: the tea-bag and milk should never touch); cooling guides (charting the exact millisecond when the temperature of tea goes from hotter than the sun to stone cold); taxonomies of tea and much more. It is the perfect gift for every tea lover.

How to Swear

How to Swear

Author: Stephen (Author) Wildish Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/09/2017

Grasping how to swear is a crucial skill to any English-speaker, but it can be a tricky business. Owing to the rich and complex history of swearing, a single word can have a host of different meanings - from expressing surprise, excitement, anger, celebration, disgust or simply that you're fucked off. If you don't get it right, you could really be in the shit. How to Swear, by graphic artist and swearing-connoisseur Stephen Wildish, uses all manner of charts and flow diagrams to teach you all you need to know, including: the building blocks of an effective insult; the adverbial uses of various types of animal excrement (horseshit, apeshit etc); and the different parts of speech a swear word can fulfil: 'Fucking fuck, the fucking fucker's fucked'. This charming (and rude) book will take you right to the heart of the wondrous world of swearing, with a lot of laughs on the way.
