Rather than explaining our origins, A Brief History of Tim addresses our history and culture at the level we most deeply desire - the trivial. By simply removing one letter, the world is tweaked with immensely enjoyable results: For those who think contemporary art is a load of rubbish, there's the Tat Modern. Find out about the Ancient Geeks, nerdy types who spent far too much time doing maths. A Brief History of Tim is laugh-out-loud funny and will have you looking at the world through fresh eyes.show more
