Now You Know More
The Book of Answers, Vol. 2
Now You Know More by Doug Lennox
Book DescriptionThis is a follow-up to last year's runaway bestseller Now You Know ...The Book of Answers, which went through five printings and sold over 20,000 copies! Why do we shout "Fore" on a golf course? Why is confetti thrown at a wedding? Exactly how long is a "moment" or a "jiffy"? Why is breaking a mirror bad luck, and a rabbit's foot good luck? In this second book, Lennox continues to trace the concise and fascinating history and reasons for hundreds of expressions in our everyday language, as well as customs and habits, in the same entertaining format that was so successful last year. These gems are from the original syndicated radio scripts broadcast daily to millions across Canada through the Sound Source Network of Standard Broadcasting.
