Knowledge: Stuff You Ought to Know
By: Ray Hamilton (author)Hardback
You can never know too much stuff. For example: * Today, the people of earth take more photos in two minutes than they did in the whole of the nineteenth century. * When the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre museum in Paris in 1911, one of the suspects was Pablo Picasso. * The surface area of Russia is larger than the surface area of Pluto. This outrageously informative book is packed full of fascinating nuggets of history, science, literature, technology, sports, geography, culture and miscellanea from every corner of the world - enough mind-blowing trivia to ensure you're never short of a jaw-dropping conversation starter (or stopper) again.
