Publisher's Summary

Can you remember how photosynthesis works? Well, what about quadratic equations? Or the names of all the Bennet sisters in Pride and Prejudice? How about Henry VIII’s wives, conjunctions, inertia, the continents of the world and the Seven Deadly Sins? And what on earth is the point of pi? Let’s face it, there are an awful lot of half-remembered things floating around in our heads.
This witty and very insightful book gathers together the facts, fiction, figures, and formulae we all learnt at school, and is guaranteed to have you exclaiming, ‘I used to know that!’

I have this in book form and it's a good overview - very useful for general knowledge revision. As an audiobook, however, it's very disappointing. No adjustments have been made for the audio format. There are even continual comments like "see page 150". It's just one long list of facts with very little narrative or commentary. Educational audiobooks ought to be along the same lines as lectures. I really hope there will be more of them! But there's no point in reading out an encyclopedia or dictionary.
