In 2003, a curious, old-fashioned, pocket-size book transformed the way we look at information. Since then, Schott's Original Miscellany and its two sequel volumes have been translated into more than fifteen languages and sold some three million copies. Now Ben Schott returns to the Miscellany format with a brand-new cabinet of curiosities. Inside you'll find fascinating facts cheek-by-jowl with information you can't live without. All things are considered, from footwear labeling symbols, airport runway markings, and sign-writing brush sizes to the traditional method of counting sheep and how to smoke cigars while reading the news. Nothing escapes the jeweler's eye of this curator of unconsidered trifles. An essential addition to the bookshelf of all who love life's rich tapestry, Schott's Quintessential Miscellany - equal parts encyclopedia, almanac, treasury, and lexicon - will remind you that there is only one Ben Schott.
