Dictionary of Idiocy: An Utterly Quirky Guide to General Ignorance
Wittgenstein said that if people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever happen. In this compelling A-Z of modern ignorance, Stephen Bayley gathers silly, curious and sometimes shocking facts on everything that makes our world tick. Why do we love mountains? Why was fear of drinking from skulls the original reason for cremation? And where does the word Fuck come from (guess what: think berets)? You’ll be surprised how much you never knew!
