More Interesting Than Your Teacher is an innovative take on familiarising yourself with fascinating subjects that were hard to follow at school, including science, geography, languages, social history, wildlife and naming. Why is it colder up at higher altitudes even though you are closer to the sun? How many is a Quintillion? And did you know that only five per cent of the world s surface is habitable? What exactly is a calorie? Is 'red' mercury a myth? And who exactly decides when Easter is every year? More Interesting Than Your Teacher covers these and many more nuggets of interesting trivia, be they amusing, profound, surprising or just plain fascinating. The author Stuart Wright believes that the school curriculum takes a mistaken approach to education by focusing on arbitrary details, confusing children in the process and removing the essential factor of enjoyment in learning. This book sets to correct this and tackle tricky or impenetrable subjects in an accessible, bite-sized way that will help children, teenagers and adults get their heads around the information at hand, without being weighed down with the humourless minutiae of information which often comes with school. With the facts presented in short, easy to understand language and accompanied by fun and informative illustrations, More Interesting Than Your Teacher can help children and adults of all ages learn and appreciate vital information without having to undertake hours of study.

''Each page provides engaging answers to new questions, with each query playfully illustrated with stunning visual and humorous references...a gem of a book.'' --Primary Times''This compact-sized book can best be described as a hip encyclopedia/trivia/fact-packed source of information, with cool artwork and awesome photos. Questions are answered, thoughts are provoked and entertainment is provided.'' - L.A. Parent ''Irreverently informative and deeply entertaining.'' - Euro Weekly News ''Enjoy classic classroom facts without harsh lighting, heavy textbooks or the mundane drone of a teacher. Bursting with bite-sized chunks of information, this book is brimming with the answers to some of life's most common musings. The perfect present for fact finders everywhere...'' --Leeds Guide

    Read this book cover to cover or dip in and out... if you're stuck in an awkward silence you can rely on 'More Interesting than your Teacher' to rescue you from it.So much better than a list of so called 'crazy' (yet context-less) statistics, Stuart Wright has included facts that are genuinely interesting and explored them in enough detail to make them memorable. It's suitable for any age - younger kids may not read it but will enjoy talking about its contents with an adult. The stunning design does justice to the quality of the writing. Highly recommended - the perfect gift for curious minds.

    This book does what it says on the cover.Sometimes you just need a book that you can pick up for a few minutes, put down, then go back to it later etc; or take on holiday for a chill out.At the same time, it's educational in an entertaining way - a tip for Teachers there !!Education doesn't end when you leave school, and there's always more stuff to learn.A reet riveting read !!

    More Interesting Than Your Teacher is the perfect name for the book. The book doesn't stick to one subject, giving the author free reign to put whatever interesting facts he wants. The book also has very good illustrations to go with the facts. It has everything from Lost Treasure to The anatomy of a Snake. Even adults would learn something from this little book. A good read for young and old!

    I received this as an unwanted Xmas present, and I am at a loss to understand why anyone would want to read it. It's like a mini-encyclopaedia of a small number of randomly selected subjects. Much less fun than browsing Wikipedia.
