The Compendium of (Not Quite) Everything : All the Facts You Didn't Know You Wanted to Know, Hardback Book

The Compendium of (Not Quite) Everything : All the Facts You Didn't Know You Wanted to Know Hardback

Hardback

Description

The Compendium of (Not Quite) Everything is a treasure trove of random knowledge.

Covering everything from the furthest known galaxies to the murky origins of oyster ice cream, inside you will find a discussion of how one might determine the most average-sized country in the world; details of humanity's most ridiculous wars; and, at last, the answer to who would win in a fight between Harry Potter and Spider-Man. Bizarre, brilliant and filled with the unexpected, The Compendium covers the breadth and depth of human experience, weaving its way through words and numbers, science and the arts, the spiritual and the secular.

It's a feast of facts for a hungry mind. Includes entries on the cosmos, the human planet, questions of measurement, history/politics, the natural world, leisure and many 'oddities' that don't fit elsewhere...
