Where else can you find, packed onto one page, the names of golf strokes, a history of the Hat Tax, cricketing dismissals, nouns of assemblage, an unofficial motto of the US Postal Service, and the flag of Guadeloupe?

Where else but "Schott's Original Miscellany" will you stumble across John Lennon's cat, the supplier of bagpipes to the Queen, the labors of Hercules, and the brutal methods of murder encountered by Miss Marple?A book like no other, "Schott's Original Miscellany" is entertaining, informative, unpredictable, and utterly addictive.
