Did you know THAT: Nicholas Parsons' GP father delivered Margaret Thatcher? Elvis Costello's father sang the 'I'm a Secret Lemonade Drinker' jingle for R. White's lemonade? Bob Marley's father was white and Liverpudlian? or THAT: The Hawaiian alphabet has only twelve letters? Stewardess is the longest word typed with only the left hand? The word 'bigwig' derives from the time of Louis XIV of France, who used to wear a big wig? WELL, YOU DO NOW! That Book is quite unlike anything you have ever read. Frighteningly addictive and almost entirely useless information is packed onto every page - once you dip in you'll be hooked for hours ...
