The Pedant's Revolt is the ultimate go-to book for settling many an unresolved dispute, shedding light on a wide range of facts that we have always believed to be true, but which are, in fact, completely false. The book covers a wide range of diverse topics, from history to science, the arts, the animal kingdom, medicine, the human body, and food and drink. Presenting its well-researched facts in a highly accessible and entertaining manner, this intriguing book sets the record straight, exposing misconceptions that have become entrenched in everyday thought. Hot on the heels of the 2005 hit "The Pedant's Revolt" comes "The Pedant's Return", the latest in Andrea Barham's popular pedantry series. How many times have you encountered an extraordinary 'fact' in your everyday life that's led you to think, 'That can't possibly be true!'? Or you've heard something highly improbable and completely dismissed the chances of it being in the least bit authentic? In "The Pedant's Return", a great many doubts will be dispelled as a range of surprising statements that sound as though they couldn't possibly be genuine, are, through careful and committed research, revealed to be 100 percent correct. Covering every conceivable subject matter, from art and literature to food and drink, the animal kingdom, figures from history, science and medical matters, words and sayings, the human body and buildings, "The Pedant's Return" will clear up those niggling points of fact endlessly disputed at social gatherings and among friends, in an accessible, informative and highly entertaining manner. Format of each book ca: 19x13,5x2 cm, 160 pages each.
