The Book of General Ignorance

$21.00

Do you really think camels store water in their humps? Are you certain you have only two nostrils and that George Washington's teeth were made of wood? Wrong. Wrong. Wrong! This hilarious (and somewhat humiliating) book of reeducation will challenge your greatest misunderstandings, misconceptions, and flat-out wrong beliefs - ultimately revealing how little we actually know about anything. Along with straightening the record on common myths like Magellan being the first to circumnavigate the globe, The Book of General Ignorance also provides the skinny on silly slip-ups (Cinderella wore fur, not glass, slippers). Thomas Edison once said that we know less than one millionth of one percent about anything: this book makes us question if we know even that much.
