About the author

Caroline West and Mark Latter are an editorial and design partnership with over 20 years of combined experience in the publishing industry. Together they run Blue Dragonfly, a creative consultancy focusing on book production. This is their first book together. The authors are based in Kent, UK.

Try and get your head around this brilliant collection of over 300 mind-blowing facts.

• Did you know that you’re more likely to die in an accident while building a sandcastle than you are from a shark bite?

• Or that a decapitated cockroach can survive without food until it eventually starves to death?

• If that's not enough to pique your interest, how about the fact that the average human sheds enough dead skin in their lifetime to fill 18 sugar bags.

We're sure your lives are already enriched by these weird and wonderful facts, but what if we were to offer you over 300 more? Well, we've done just that and you have in your hand a collection of some of the funniest, grimmest, grossest, grimiest, bizarre, disgusting, outrageous, and outstanding nuggets of information on the planet. Each one will have you scratching your head in disbelief and laughing out loud at the randomness of it all. So if you've never heard of Miracle Mike, the chicken that survived for 18 months despite not having a head, then read this book immediately!
