About the Author:

Caroline Taggart has worked in publishing for nearly 30 years, the last 18 of them as a freelance editor of non-fiction. She has edited innumerable natural history titles, notably Jonathan Scott's Big Cat Diary books and the tie-in to the BBC series Walking with Dinosaurs, as well as books on gardening, cookery, health, witchcraft, pop music, the Blitz, the D-Day landings, the House of Commons and the English language. She has also written a handbook for mature students and an encyclopaedia of dogs. The first book Caroline wrote was I Used To Know That, a Sunday Times bestseller published in 2008. This was followed by My Grammar and I (also a Sunday Times bestseller), Answers to Rhetorical Questions, A Classical Education, An Apple A Day and Pushing the Envelope. Her books have appeared in the Sunday Times, Daily Express, Daily Telegraph, the Times, the Sun and many other publications, and her frequent television and radio appearances include BBC1 Breakfast, BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 5 Live.

Review:

Amusing but useful... I am not the only one planning to keep it on my desk to avoid any intellectually embarrassing moments The Scotsman a droll personal audit of how much - or how little - of school learning lingers on into later life... it is not only fun to dip into, it is a mine of useful information... It's all there, easily found, clearly laid out The Oldie This is a fascinating book... it will no doubt be a great source of entertainment around many a dinner table She A fun and witty collection of snippets of information we 'used to know' from school Essentials This is an absorbing volume of familiar facts and figures you may well have forgotten... If the answers are just out of reach, but you know them really, this is the book for you Sainsbury's Magazine It is a fascinating read and you might even learn a few things you missed out on first time around Townswoman Magazine It covers everything we should remember from school but don't The Western Mail could help you connect with your childhood, boost your brainpower and remind your kids just how clever you are Irish News [an] entertaining rag-bag of a book, a sort of cocktail of half-remembered things from your schooldays Birmingham Evening Mail
