The international bestseller, this comprehensive catalogue of all the misconceptions, mistakes and misunderstandings in 'common knowledge' will make you wonder why anyone bothers going to school. Carry it everywhere to impress your friends, frustrate your enemies and win every argument. You have no muscles in your fingers. Coffee isn't made from beans. No one has ever slid down a bannister. There are 613 commandments in the Bible. Vipers, cobras and rattlesnakes are not poisonous. Newborn babies are indifferent to their mothers. The Swiss Family weren't called Robinson. The unluckiest date is Monday the 27th.
