The Uncyclopedia

The Uncyclopedia

Gideon Haigh

Undefinitive, defiantly selective and unapologetically recondite, The Uncyclopedia is a compendium of knowledge neither trivial nor essential, yet always illuminating. Here at last in one convenient volume are lists of governors-general, Norse gods, phobias and instructions on how to toast in ten languages, use morse code and open an oyster.

Away with dull care, farewell to vocational learning, viva epistemophilia! Gideon Haigh’s The Uncyclopedia is a reference book to delight all inquisitive readers.

Praise for Gideon Haigh
andThe Uncyclopedia

‘This neat little hardback might be the perfect gift for those family members who are notoriously hard to please. Aunts with a passion for crosswords, cranky dads who never take their heads out of the newspaper and the big brother who thinks he knows everything and who will be immensely cheered up to find out that he doesn’t.’
