Product description

Review

Greg Jenner's magpie mind takes you through the history of who we are and what we do, answering tons of questions you never thought to ask (Al Murray)

A wonderful idea, gloriously put into practice, Greg Jenner is as witty as he is knowledgeable (Tom Holland)

Like visiting the most wonderful and cluttered museum, each chapter like another room teetering with illuminating ideas and information (Robin Ince)

bright, fun and enjoyable (HISTORY VAULT)

One of my all time favourite books about history: erudite, witty and packed with things you've never thought about (Peter Frankopan)

Delightful, surprising and hilarious, this is a fascinating history of the everyday objects and inventions we take for granted (Lauren Laverne)

If you find yourself secretly relishing your children's Horrible History books, you will love Greg Jenner's jolly account of how we have more in common with our ancestors than we might think ... all human life is here, amusingly conveyed in intriguing nuggets of gossipy historical anecdote (DAILY MAIL)

A wonderful idea, gloriously put into practice. Greg Jenner as is witty as he is knowledgeable (Tom Holland)

Fascinating ... [Jenner] crafts some fine aphorisms, and it would be a staggeringly learned person who could not glean anything new from this work (Steven Poole WALL STREET JOURNAL)

Book Description
