In this irreverent, smart, obscenely entertaining book, Andrea Barham shatters the myths, misconceptions, fallacies, and falsehoods about all the things you thought you knew (and a few you never considered). Lead pencils can give you lead poisoning...

Newton discovered gravity when an apple fell on his head...One dog year equals seven human years...Marie Antoinette said "Let them eat cake ."..Spelling Christmas "Xmas" is disrespectful...Fact or fiction? The Pedant's Revolt: Know What Know-It-Alls Know sets the record straight on everything from the truth about starving a fever to why you shouldn't "go for the burn". In chapters literary, medical, grammatical, historical, scientific, and biblical, you'll discover the facts behind the fallacies that have somehow become accepted wisdom.

From insects to food, grooming to Greeks, bumblebees to whales...from the animal kingdom to assassinations, Harpo Marx to Shakespeare, and questionable quotes such as "It's all Greek to me", this remarkable book reveals the often surprising origins of the legends and folklore we mistake for the gospel truth-and teaches you to think twice before repeating them.
