Dictionary of MisinformationA remarkable book that contains enough information to help you win bets the rest of your life The bagpipe was not a Scottish invention Abner Doubleday did not invent baseball at Cooperstown or anywhere else in America London's Big Ben is I remember reading bits of this in a dog eared mass market paperback when I was in high school My much smarter friend Scott had read it and I wanted to be as brainy as he was But then he took back his copy and I forgot about he book entirely until seeing it mentioned in a Ken Jennings' acknowledgment So bought a used copy and read it straight throughA terrific book for pedants and know it alls and while I now a fair bit of what you can find in here there was enough that I had no idea about whatsoever to make it worthwhile reading Unfortunately this book was written in the seventies and so there are many references to countries no longer in existence and so forth making the reading of this very much like what it was back in the eighties
