Be wowed by the 3-D cover of this fantastic new information book for a generation used to finding stuff out from the Internet. Stuffed full of information on nature, history, science, society and more and brilliantly cross-referenced, it is illustrated throughout with gorgeous photos.

Useful quizzes will help make some of the facts stick!

Synopsis

Pick Me Up Put Me Down by David Robert and Jeremy Leslie

Was Beethoven a punk? Why is 10 to the power of 100 called a googol? How are smelly feet connected to nuclear weapons? This book covers these questions and others.

About the Author

Before becoming Group Editor at John Brown Citrus Publishing, where he works across a range of launches and magazine titles for clients such as Virgin and Orange, David worked for a wide variety of consumer titles from the FT magazine (deputy editor) to Radio Times (commissioning editor).

David was one of the three-person team that conceived and launched the new Nova magazine in 2000, and spent two years at GQ magazine in the 1990s. Before becoming a full-time journalist, David worked in the music business, initially for Warner Records and then, for five years, independently as a band manager.

David has also written features for the likes of Q magazine, GQ, Esquire and the Times Magazine. For a while David had a regular slot on Virgin Radio as ‘gigs man’ and once appeared on ITV News to incorrectly tip the Teletubbies to make the Christmas number one slot!
