The Book of 4 Minute Reads : Intelligent Hardback



Foreword by Jane Garvey. Encompassing a grand sweep of knowledge in a bite-sized format, this book will take you on a journey of intellectual discovery and intelligent time-wasting.

Featuring a foreword by Jane Garvey, the award-winning British radio presenter and co-founder of podcast series Fortunately, The Book of 4 Minute Reads is a fascinating compendium of big, modern ideas written by an array of experts including Michael Rosen, Adam Rutherford and Grayson Perry.

Also included are timed essays on a diverse range of subjects from animals and accents, to life lessons you never thought you needed and library secrets that you had never heard of. From the seven toughest plants in the world and why they can survive in harsh climates and how teenagers' brains are influenced by hormones, to what Chaucer would ask his voice command device and how where you live got its name, The Book of 4 Minute Reads is for the attention-deficit nation who are eager to indulge their intellectual curiosity in a short amount of time.
