'This is a fascinating book ... it will no doubt be a great source of entertainment around many a dinner table' - She Magazine
______________________________

A Sunday Times top-ten title in 2008 and a bestseller ever since, I Used to Know That has continued to delight readers with its pages of forgotten facts from our school days.


I Used to Know That is an ideal and accessible reference guide for adults wanting to brush up on their lost knowledge - or prepare for a pub quiz!

If you've forgotten the capital city of Chile; the basics of osmosis; how to solve a quadratic equation; who wrote the famous poem about daffodils; the use of a conjunction or the number of continents in the world, I Used to Know That is guaranteed to provide all the answers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Amusing but useful... I am not the only one planning to keep it on my desk to avoid any intellectually embarrassing moments * The Scotsman *
a droll personal audit of how much - or how little - of school learning lingers on into later life... it is not only fun to dip into, it is a mine of useful information... It's all there, easily found, clearly laid out * The Oldie *
This is a fascinating book... it will no doubt be a great source of entertainment around many a dinner table * She *
A fun and witty collection of snippets of information we 'used to know' from school * Essentials *
This is an absorbing volume of familiar facts and figures you may well have forgotten... If the answers are just out of reach, but you know them really, this is the book for you * Sainsbury's Magazine *
It is a fascinating read and you might even learn a few things you missed out on first time around * Townswoman Magazine *
It covers everything we should remember from school but don't * The Western Mail *
could help you connect with your childhood, boost your brainpower and remind your kids just how clever you are * Irish News *
[an] entertaining rag-bag of a book, a sort of cocktail of half-remembered things from your schooldays * Birmingham Evening Mail *
