About the Author:

The book is written and compiled by Vincent Powell, a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand, who has edited numerous legal publications on everything from road traffic law to companies and securities law, and from employment law to Wills Probate. He is currently editor of the IP Review, a quarterly magazine on intellectual property. Vince lives in Swiss Cottage, London.

Review:

Ever wonder what happens to the 36,000 tennis balls used at the annual Wimbledon championships? Or what was on the menu at Henry IV’s coronation? Would you like to know how to master the Japanese art of packing a rucksack? Or how to say hello in 20 different languages? These delightfully eclectic, exceedingly collectable volumes are bursting with useful trivia and quirky facts to amuse and amaze. Pleasingly designed, eminently browsable, downright addictive.
