Schott's Quintessential Miscellany
If 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.
