  • Have you always thought that a goldfish has a 3-second memory span?
  • Do you think your morning coffee comes from a bean?
  • Do you believe that those accused at the Salem Witch Trials were burned at the stake?

    If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you’ve been lied to. But don’t worry, this book will set the record straight on all the common myths that most people take for fact, making you the most well-informed smart-alec in town.

    So next time someone proclaims that Napoleon Bonaparte was short, or that shaving causes hair to grow back thicker, you can correct them, and tell them smugly that everything they think they know is wrong.
Richard Benson is a retired teacher with a wealth of anecdotes from his professional life, which fueled his humor series F in Exams. He's also a keen amateur cricketer. He lives in Suffolk, England.
