From the sublime to the ridiculous, Just My Typo is a hilarious collection of typographical errors, slips of the pen and embarrassing misprints which, like any typo of any kind, should never have happened, cannot be excused, and must not in any way be glorified. Enjoy. You'll travel back in time to meet great figures from history: Sir Francis Drake (who circumcised the world in a small ship), Queen Victoria (who pissed graciously over the Menai Bridge), and Rambo (the famous French poet). You'll find moral instruction ('Blessed are the meek, for they shall irrigate the earth') and pearls of wisdom ('love is just a passing fanny'). You'll be outraged by politicians who exploit disasters to boost their pubic profiles; entranced by lambs that gamble in the fields; concerned for a man who was admitted to hospital suffering from severe buns; and appalled to meet 11-year-old twins Helen and Ugh.

Review:

'Prefect. A grate book!' -- . Mark Forsyth, author of THE ETYMOLOGICON The typo: creator of angst and giggles. Best not read this in public, as you will laugh out loud. Or have the urge to nudge the stranger sitting next to you, just so you can tell them about that hilarious thing you just read. Like how Hitler had a ruthless gazpacho. Or how Rambo was a famous French poet. Or how... oh, just read the damn thing. -- . Jen Campbell, author of WEIRD THINGS CUSTOMERS SAY IN BOOKSHOPS This is one of the most abusing books around. Amusing. I meant amusing. With an M. Listen, someone had to do that joke, why not me? -- . A J JACOBS, author of The Year of Living Biblically Picked as one of the Guardian Books of the Year: 'You could put a gentle reminder in your card that "gift" has been used as a verb since the 16th century, and gift a book about language'. Guardian Hilarious! Don't read it through in one sitting, tempting as it might be to see what's over the page. You do reach a stage where it's difficult for onlookers to establish if you're convulsed with laughter or in need of medical assistance. Bookbag Delightful... as an 1864 edition of the Bible suggested, "Rejoice and be exceedingly clad!" TLS King of the stocking filler books this Christmas... Essentially it's the best most fun chunks of the internet that you're thrilled to see when you're hungover. Alex Heminglsey, 60SecondReview Hard to suppress the snorts of laughter when reading this jolly collection of spelling mistakes, sub-editing disasters and misprints. The Lady A Guardian Best Stocking-Filler Book 2012. . 'Roundly entertaining... the pedant's stocking filler for 2012'. Bookseller magazine humour picks
