If programmes like QI fascinate you, you will love this book.
Nice touch: the editor's introduction comes complete with an e-mail address. Any reader who finds a usage that Jonathon Green doesn't know about, is free to send it in for future editions. But I personally find few usages that Jonathon Green doesn't know about.
Excellent work but, because of attention paid to "rude words", probably not a good gift for children.
