    DescriptionDon't know Heracles from Herodotus? Wouldn't recognize a concerto from a sonata? Many of us wish that we could fill in the gaps in our education in order to avoid those embarrassing situations when we feel as if we don't know things that others do. In `Back to Basics`, bestselling author Caroline Taggart will provide readers with the opportunity to learn really useful stuff that was never taught in mainstream education, while also giving a refresher course on the main staples. From brushing up on Latin verse and the history of art, to identifying different types of clouds, your thirst for knowledge will be sated and your education complete - and it's enormous fun to boot!

Her other books include Her Ladyship's Guide to the Queen's English, The Book of English Place Names and The Book of London Place Names.
