Publisher's Summary

Can you remember how photosynthesis works? Well, what about quadratic equations? Or the names of all the Bennet sisters in Pride and Prejudice? How about Henry VIII’s wives, conjunctions, inertia, the continents of the world and the Seven Deadly Sins? And what on earth is the point of pi? Let’s face it, there are an awful lot of half-remembered things floating around in our heads.
This witty and very insightful book gathers together the facts, fiction, figures, and formulae we all learnt at school, and is guaranteed to have you exclaiming, ‘I used to know that!’

Almost Good

This book was based on a sound idea and I looked forward to listening to it as I drive to and from work.

Perhaps the content was not fully what I expected but it recounted overly dry detail such as the reading through of the entire periodic table and thumbnails of Shakespeare's plays and the Brontes' books etc but for me it lacked real entertainment and the narration was really irritating.

Bit of a clunker

This doesn't work as an audiobook. Too many references to 'see page...' and the mathematical formulas were too confusing to listen to without having a pen and paper to hand.
