In 1995, a secret society was formed comprising Britain's foremost thinkers, writers and artists, to explore the world's most bizarre nooks and crannies, to trade and share in useless information. In this book, they reveal their findings to the public. Playwright, author and "Daily Mail" columnist, Keith Waterhouse, together with author and "Sun" columnist Richard Littlejohn, present a collection of information that details all you never needed to know and didn't need to ask.

About the author

Trained as a surveyor, Nick Gordon started his photography career as a News cameraman for the BBC, eventually obtaining his first wildlife commission. His first film was Survival Anglia's Giant Otter, followed by Tiwai: Island of the Apes, and Tarantula! During his filming he has consistently broken new ground, for example, with his scientific advisor discovering a new breed of marmoset and a 'lost tribe' and filming the giant tarantula for the first time in the wild. Creatures of the Magic Water was shortlisted for best Single Documentary in the 1997 Royal Television Society Awards. He has won awards including a First Prize at the International Nature and Environmental Film Festival in France in 1996. Nick spends most of the year in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, his base a hut only accessible by canoe. He has two daughters. This is his first book.
