30 days hath september, April June and November
on 15 January 2008
Only one minor criticism of this book is that it does not have an index. With computers it is very easy to do an index and any serious book should have one.
I still use the rhyme for the days of the month the famous Thirty days hath September etc
To spell or not to spell taught me that the mnemonic for DIARRHOEA which is a very difficult word to remember and is Dash In a A Real Rush Hurry Or Else Accident.
A common mistake because people get confused with the American spelling is licence / license and practice/ practise
s is the verb and c is the noun, that's the rule that runs the town.
A great little book which deserves a lot of study. It is a must for fans of arcane trivia. There were things in there that I had never heard of such as the taxonomic classification and the Buddhist ten states of mind.
A great present for those who think they know it all. They will soon realise they do not.
If you take time to memorise the contents of this book you might achieve number ten being Buddha, the state of perfection.
