Review quote

"'a jolly useful old school primer dressed up in postmodern clothes... Everyone will want to dip into this' - Tribune, 6 June 08 'A fun and witty collection of snippets of information we 'used to know' from school.' - Essentials, July 2008 'This is a fascinating book... it will no doubt be a great source of entertainment around many a dinner table during the festive season' - She, December 08"
