Think Magellan was the first man to circumnavigate the globe, baseball was invented in America, Henry VIII had six wives, and Mount Everest is the tallest mountain? Wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong again. Misconceptions, misunderstandings, and flawed facts finally get the heave-ho in this humorous, downright humiliating book of re-education based on the phenomenal British bestseller.
Challenging what most of us assume to be verifiable truths in areas like history, literature, science, nature, and more, "The Book of General Ignorance" is a witty "gotcha" compendium of how little we actually know about anything. Revealing the truth behind all the things we think we know but don't, this book leaves you dumbfounded about all the misinformation you've managed to collect during your life!
