With hundreds of curious and witty bits of wisdom, this collection of mnemonics will help you remember lists such as the seven hills of Rome (Poor Queen Victoria Eats Crow At Christmas), tricky spellings (by noting that three 'e's are buried in a cemetery) and the first few digits of pi. The second half of the book is an entertaining selection of colourful idioms, arranged by themes such as love, moods and limited intelligence (one sandwich short of a picnic).
