It would be wrong to dismiss this little gem as a stocking
filler... an amusing and fascinating collection of facts...' -- Hamstead & Highgate Express, 19 Oct, 2006
About the Author
An author and freelance technical writer, Andrea Barham is the acceptable face of pedantry: while she is a big fan of the world, she feels there should be less wrongness and more rightness in it. Painfully aware of her inability to correct the bigger issues such as war, poverty and global warming, she is concentrating on smaller issues more suited to her skills, which consists of 'looking stuff up'. Having focused her mind on correcting a mass of misconceptions in the bestselling "The Pedant's Revolt" (2005), she has now made it her mission to highlight the truth behind a host of the most preposterous-sounding facts. "The Pedant's Return" is Andrea's sixth book.
