About the Author
William Hartston read Mathematics at Cambridge and is the author of many chess books, while his interest in useless information has given rise to The Drunken Goldfish (a tribute to useless academic research), How Was It For You, Professor (a book on academic sex research), Odd Dates Only (a book of weird anniversaries) and The Book of Numbers (a collection of weird numerical information). Since 1998, he has been writing the daily Beachcomber column of surreal humour for the Daily Express.
