About the Book

Don'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 it's enormous fun to boot!

About the Author

Caroline Taggart worked in publishing as an editor of popular non-fiction for thirty 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 was co-author of My Grammar and I (or should that be 'Me'?), and wrote a number of other books about words and English usage. She has appeared frequently on television and on national and regional radio, talking about language, grammar and whether or not Druids Cross should have an apostrophe.
