From plot summaries of shakespeare’s plays through countless top ten lists and potted biographies of the world’s most influential people to a whole section full of stuff you can say to sound clever, this handy-sized book is beyond invaluable. Quirky, unique, perfect to dip into or just have on hand to solve countless family disputes - a must have.
An authoritative, quirky trivia book divided into themed chapters. Whitaker's Little Book of Knowledge contains thousands of general knowledge gems: from everything you learned at school to fascinating lists of contemporary 'top-tens', mini-biographies of famous artists and writers, plus condensed guides to films and works of art and literature. In addition, there is a light-hearted journey down memory lane featuring humorous entries on forgotten treasures from different decades and a stand-alone sport chapter with guides to both well-known and obscure sports, key rules, a glossary of terms and short biographies of the world's greatest sporting heroes. Facts are both newly researched and drawn from the rich treasure-trove of the Whitaker's Almanack archive, which dates back to 1868.
