Book Description

24 May 2012 I Used to Know That
From pi and Pythagoras to presidents and popes, prime ministers to prime numbers, literature to litmus tests, there is so much information from our school days that we have forgotten, or only half-remember. Designed to dust-off those cerebral filing cabinets, The I Used to Know That Activity Book is an enjoyable and interactive way of reminding ourselves of all those facts that we'd like to remember and re-learn, or those we missed the first time round! The book contains questions across all subjects, perfect to dip into and try your hand at whenever the mood takes you. There is space to fill in the answers and, if you are a bit rusty, all solutions can be found at the back of the book. This is an enjoyable and lighthearted activity book for any adult, or fan of the original book.

More About the Author

Caroline Taggart worked in publishing as an editor of popular non-fiction for 30 years before being asked by Michael O'Mara Books to write I USED TO KNOW THAT, which became a Sunday Times bestseller. Following that she co-wrote MY GRAMMAR AND I (OR SHOULD THAT BE 'ME'?) As a result of these books and HER LADYSHIP'S GUIDE TO THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH, published by the National Trust, she has appeared frequently on BBC Breakfast and on national and regional radio, talking about language, grammar and Pythagoras's theorem. Her recent books include THE BOOK OF ENGLISH PLACE NAMES and THE BOOK OF LONDON PLACE NAMES, both published by Ebury Press, and A SLICE OF BRITAIN: AROUND THE COUNTRY BY CAKE from AA Publishing. The Sunday Times described this as 'engaging, greedy and droll'. As a result of this latest project she is visiting food and literary festivals around the country, talking about cake. Her website is and you can follow her on Twitter @citaggart.
