How do people count cards? Why do we cry tears? Why is New York the Big Apple? Who is the caesar salad really named after? What knot do we tie when we marry? Are dogs really colourblind? And, of course, what came first, the chicken or the egg? This fascinating and fun volume provides concise answers to hundreds of the questions we all ponder from time to time and also sets us straight about many things that most of us assume to be true, giving us the often surprising low down on an astonishing variety of topics. Essential reading for any lover of learned knowledge combined with memorable trivia!
