    DescriptionIf "Schott's Original Miscellany" could claim to be essential then it is only logical that the distillation of ten years consideration of little known but important facts and the small details that make life fascinating should appear under the title "Schott's Quintessential Miscellany". And like its predecessor it is entertaining, informative, unpredictable and utterly addictive.

    Review quote
    Praise for Schott's Original Miscellany 'Schott's Original Miscellany is without doubt the oddest, nay maddest, and possibly merriest, title you will come across in a long day's march through the shimmering desert of contemporary publishing' Observer 'This bizarre little book manages to be both totally useless and nearly indispensable' Daily Telegraph 'Entertaining, informative and unpredictable, Schott's Original Miscellany is a book like no other' Saga
