Dictionary of Idiocy : An Utterly Quirky Guide to General Ignorance Paperback

Description

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!
