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)

From the Publisher:

In the same series as the bestselling I Before E (Except After C) and My Grammar and I (Or should it be Me?)
