- BACK TO BASICS : THE EDUCATION YOU WISH YOU'D HAD
DetailsDon't know Midas from Oedipus?Wouldn't recognize a concerto from a sonata?Many of us wish that we could fill in the gaps in our education in order to avoid those embarrassing situations when we feel as if we don't know things that others do.In Back to Basics, bestselling author Caroline Taggart provides readers with the opportunity to learn really useful stuff that was never taught in mainstream education, while also giving a refresher course on the main staples. From brushing up on Bible stories and classical architecture, to identifying different types of clouds, your thirst for knowledge will be sated and your education complete - and its enormous fun to boot!ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Caroline Taggart worked in publishing as an editor of popular non-fiction for 30 years before being asked by Michael O'Mara Books to write I USED TO KNOW THAT, which became a Sunday Times bestseller. Following that she co-wrote MY GRAMMAR AND I (OR SHOULD THAT BE 'ME'?) As a result of these books and HER LADYSHIP'S GUIDE TO THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH, published by Batsford, she has appeared frequently on BBC Breakfast and on national and regional radio, talking about language, grammar and Pythagoras's theorem. Her record is 16 radio interviews in one day on the subject of exclamation marks.Her other books include THE BOOK OF ENGLISH PLACE NAMES, THE BOOK OF LONDON PLACE NAMES, HOW TO GREET THE QUEEN (AND OTHER QUESTIONS OF MODERN ETIQUETTE) and A SLICE OF BRITAIN: AROUND THE COUNTRY BY CAKE which The Sunday Times described as 'engaging, greedy and droll'. Since then she has reverted to words, with 500 WORDS YOU SHOULD KNOW, NEW WORDS FOR OLD and her current project, MISADVENTURES IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, due in autumn 2016. The latest in her ‘Her Ladyship’ series for Batsford is HER LADYSHIP’S GUIDE TO THE ART OF CONVERSATION.
