Product description

Perfect follow-ups to the universally acclaimed I "Used to Know That", these five titles go that little bit further by filling in the gaps with some more in-depth knowledge on each individual subject. Written in a highly accessible and lighthearted way you can brush up on your maths, science, history, geography and English language while enjoying a walk down memory lane - and remembering the stuff you really shouldn't have forgotten...
