There are many questions that swim around inside our brains, not important questions, but ones that have answers that one day we may find extremely useful.
How do you send a Morse code message to get help?
What is my name in Semaphore?
What film won the Best Film Oscar in 1978?
How many two letter words are there in Scrabble?
What are some good tongue twisters?
Who was King/Queen in 1649?
All of these and many more questions besides, can be answered using Know by Katrina Greenslade. Know is a book that is crammed with information, lists, tables and more to help you uncover answered to the questions that tend to crop up every now and then. It is a handy little book that would be at home in any library of books or even on your desk, always at hand to help you find out that a male panda is called a boar, Cinderella was a story first documented in 1697 or that a nine sided shape is called a nonagon.
The book is set out in an incredibly engaging way that has you turning page after page to learn more about the world we live in that you didn’t know. It is almost laid out like an infographic, easily accessible for anyone who wants to broaden their horizons and have a little fun whilst reading.
For example, how do you get on with the tongue twister? The sixth sheikh’s sixth sheep’s sick. Are you stumped by text message abbreviations? Want to say hello to Zulu, Italian and Hindi friends? If you want to know some hysterically amusing ways to deal with cold calling telemarketers, then you had better pop out and pick up your copy of Know, now, published by Olympia Publishers and available for £15.99 (RRP)
