Tiny Histories is a fond, fun and informative look at the seemingly insignificant coincidences, decisions and tiny moments that triggered major events and changed the course of British history. It might be difficult to believe when watching the news but the world we live in is often shaped not by the whim of governments and the decisions of world leaders but by tiny, apparently trivial events. In many cases, they can have enormous repercussions that mould both the society we live in today and the people we are. From the innocent wrong turn by a chauffeur driving Archduke Ferdinand in June 1914 that led to World War I, to the Saxon leader, Byrhtnoth's act of chivalry in 991 that paved the way for British comedy as we know it today, this brilliant new addition to Dixe Will's bestselling books Tiny Churches, Tiny Islands and Tiny Stations looks behind the scenes of wars, politics, the arts, food, science, and even health and safety. Perfect for history buffs and pub-quiz fans, this brilliant book also serves to make us all more aware that in an age of so many dramatic changes, challenges and unknowns, it is not always what makes the headlines that shapes the future for generations to come.
'The nerdiest and longest-running quiz around' The Spectator Have you got what it takes to tackle Radio 4's most fiendish quiz?

Each series sees six teams from around the UK competing against each other to solve a series of seriously cryptic clues, with a chairman giving a steer on how to get to the answer. Compiled by long-serving series producer, Paul Bajoria, and with an introduction from the Chairman, BBC journalist Tom Sutcliffe, The Round Britain Quiz Book features 250 of the toughest and most challenging questions from the last 70 years as well as many new and exclusive conundrums, drawing on unpredictable fields of knowledge, to truly test the nation. *Answer: They might all be found on a cheeseboard, as accompaniments to the cheese. The psychologist referred to is 'Fitz' in the TV series Cracker, the former MP is Eric Pickles, and Gilbert Grape is Peter Hedges' creation.

Can you tell the Trumpisms from the hot air?!?! The big bad media just keeps on spreading tall tales, but at long last here is a book that can help you hone your skills of fishing the truth from the lies! On each page of this book, you'll find two statements on the same subject matter. One is from the real Trump (i.e. a definitive quote from DJT about happenings in the USA, the rest of the world, people and general wisdom). The other is your average trump (something we made up, fake news, hot air, smoke in the wind, a big fat fart). For example* . . . A) TRUMP: Climate change has happened since dinosaur times, it's happened since cave men walked the earth. And they didn't have cars in the Ice Age. or B) TRUMP: It's really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal. Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming! The perfect stocking filler for quiz-hungry politicos this Christmas, TRUMP V TRUMP will keep you entertained for hours. ----- * The Answer is B! Donald tweeted this back on 19 October 2015 - because who isn't wistful for climate change?
Everybody loves a good mystery and sometimes the questions can be more interesting than the answers. Will Pearson investigates twenty unique mysteries with their broad spectrum of strangeness. Some, like the sudden disappearance of the sailing ship Mary Celeste's passengers and crew have gained universal currency. Was the Wow! Signal a radio transmission form deep space, or was it the ambient resonating frequency of a passing comet? Cryptids like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster teeter on the boundaries of probable and improbable, hoax and reality, fact and fiction. Whether it be the intrigue of lost civilisations, like Goeblekli Tepe in Turkey, sensationalist interest in The Zodiac Killer, or the elusive Shugborough Code that neither Dickens nor Darwin could crack, each unsolved mystery presents a challenge in its own way. Occasionally, it can feel as if there's a conspiracy at work - one in which scientists, journalists and 'professional explainers' want to put an end to anything and everything mysterious in life. Thankfully, not everything can be nailed down, sucked dry of its secrets and turned into a factoid. Mysteries do still exist - and continue to tease us. Sceptic or believer, the fun lies in probing them.

How far actually are you from the nearest rat? Can you get high from licking toads, or is that...fake newts? All this and far, far more can be found in True or Poo, a guide to the wonders of the natural world: and a manual for disgusting and one-upping your friends and enemies for years to come.
