      1000 Things Worth Knowing

      by Nathaniel C. Fowler Jr.

      Review


      Do you need to know about Amazons and why not to play April fool’s day pranks on them?
      Perhaps you need to know about the atmosphere or the Aurora borealis. Whether you need to know about Adventists or arsonists, witch hazel or wills, poison or panacea, this is the book for you!
      This is an encyclopaedia but not of everything one could wish to know. Instead, this is an encyclopaedia of everything one should wish to know. The interesting, the surprising and the scintillating populate the pages of ‘1000 Things worth Knowing’ by Nathaniel C Fowler. As part of his surprisingly serious run of self-help books, this is designed to help the ordinary person seem knowledgeable and cultured in their daily travels. The information varies from basic health advice on how to cope with bites, burns and other minor ailments all the way to early twentieth century communications technology. It reflects the attitude that began to reach everywhere across the globe in the twentieth century, that the world was moving fast and we’d all better try to keep up with it.
      The historical nature of some of the subject matter has if anything lent the author’s style a beneficial and charming pomposity about what might be considered worth knowing. He knew about suffrage but was captivated by whisky, wine and watches. This is a perfectly balanced book which will keep you not just informed but highly entertained throughout.

      Excerpt


      This book contains 'more than one thousand facts, many of which are not generally known to the average person; but all of them are of interest to humankind, and a knowledge of many of them is essential.
