About the Book

'This is a fascinating book… it will no doubt be a great source of entertainment around many a dinner table' – She

A Sunday Times top-ten title in 2008 and a bestseller ever since, I Used to Know That has continued to delight readers with its pages of forgotten facts from our school days.


This great gift book has been repackaged with a fresh jacket design for anyone new to the series, and old fans alike. Nostalgic, informative and entertaining, it is an ideal and accessible buy for adults wanting to brush up on their lost knowledge.

If you've forgotten the capital city of Chile; the basics of osmosis; how to solve a quadratic equation; who wrote the famous poem about daffodils; the use of a conjunction or the number of continents in the world, I Used to Know That is guaranteed to provide all the answers.

Other titles in the series include:

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.
