The Book of Shakespearian Useless Information

Hardback
by Montague, Bruce
'This book is loosely based on the lost journals that William Shakespeare never wrote, describing his life and times in chronological order and the subsequent Bardolatry that encompasses the civilized world ...'

In common with the Holy Book, little is known about the writer and the few facts that have emerged over the course of several hundred years...

The Breaking Bad Cookbook

Hardback
by Mitchell, Chris
For five seasons, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman were undisputedly the greatest cooks in North America. From their humble origins as part-timers in a cramped (and decidedly unreliable) RV to the halcyon days in a state-of-the-art 'kitchen', the duo prospered, with competitors falling (sometimes explosively) by the wayside. Customers paid top dollar for their product. Connoisseurs came from all over the cont...

Behind Palace Doors

by Burgess, Colin
She was described as the most dangerous woman in Europe by Adolf Hitler; Noel Coward said people who spent any time with her were always reduced to 'gibbering worshippers'; she adored Margaret Thatcher and disliked Germans; she found the French comical and hankered for the old days of Empire and Commonwealth. Above all, though, she was loved by the nation and in this affectionate and often hilarious inside ...

The Great Cat Massacre: A History of Britain in 100 Mistakes

Paperback
by Rubin, Gareth
In 1914 a train pulled into a provincial British railway station. The porter, a curious chap, asked the regiment of soldiers where they were from. 'Ross-shire,' one called down, but the porter heard 'Russia'. And so began a rumour that led to Germany losing the First World War. Often the history we learn at school is only half the story. We hear of heroic deeds and visionary leaders, but we never hear about...

He had great friends and privileged experiences. Why on earth w...

The premise of the show was simple: take a man and dump him in an unfamiliar culture in a faraway land with no money and nowhere to stay, then leave him to survive using his own resources. There's just one drawback - Cash is not the adventurous...
