`Queuing for Beginners' deals with the minutiae of everyday life: from sending emails to the history of packaged sandwiches; from the impact of IKEA stores opening and bed buying to how we select sofas; from the behaviour of smokers to the departure of the tea trolley. The book offers answers to questions you might not even have thought of asking. It's original and fascinating (although I could have done without the section on the introduction of Pelican crossings which seemed to go on forever!)
One to buy for the nerd in your life! Very enjoyable.
