The Pedant's Revolt: Why Most Things You Think Are Right Are Wrong (EPUB ebook)

By Barham, Andrea

The bell goes for last orders and you still haven't sorted out whether or not flamingos are pink because of their diet or if Lady Godiva really rode through the streets of Coventry naked? The Pedant's Revolt is the ultimate go-to book for settling many an unresolved dispute, shed...ding light on a wide range of facts that we have always believed to be true, but which are, in fact, completely false. The book covers a wide range of diverse topics, from history to science, the arts, the animal kingdom, medicine, the human body, and food and drink. Presenting its well-researched facts in a highly accessible and entertaining manner, this intriguing book sets the record straight, exposing misconceptions that have become entrenched in everyday thought.
