Author(s): COLGAN, STEVYN
What is the link between the Sex Pistols and crude oil; between Isaac Newton, Pink Floyd and a suicidal dwarf on the set of The Wizard of Oz ? What is Scooby-Doo's real name, and why should you make a point of avoiding armadillos? You'll find out the answers to these questions and a whole lot more in Joined-Up Thinking. Each chapter of the book begins with a fascinating piece of information, spins a dizzying web of connected facts and, with a spine-tingling final flourish, brings the loop full circle. So open up the book, begin at the beginning - and end at the beginning...'I found myself fascinated and, like a child who thinks it's fun to go round and round in circles, somewhat dizzy. Most impressive' Stephen Fry 'The book that nails that odd, slightly unnerving feeling that everything really is connected' John Mitchinson, co-author of QI: The Book of General Ignorance
