A Dictionary of Idiocy : An Utterly Quirky Guide to General Ignorance Paperback
Wittgenstein said that if people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever happen.
In this compelling A-Z of modern ignorance, Stephen Bayley gathers silly, curious and sometimes shocking facts on everything that makes our world tick.
Why does Judeo-Christianity love mountains? Why was fear of drinking from skulls the original reason for cremation? And where does the word Fuck come from (hint: think berets)?
You'll be surprised how much you never knew!
