This is one of my favourite books of all time silly harmless educated humour at its best It plays on all of the English history that you would traditionally have been taught at school and promptly forgotten presenting it in the slightly hazy jumble stereotypical of someone who went through the education system a little longer ago than they d care to rememberThe humour is reminiscent of Monty Python as is often said But Seller Yeatman are less absurdist though the inherently childish silliness is the same Obviously no real knowledge of history is needed to enjoy this bookIt keeps vaguely to the mock format of a textbook there are exam uestions at the end of each chapter which are just as funny as the chapters themselves and get progressively ridiculous as you go on Every time I return to 1006 and All That I am left with tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks I can t think of any higher recommendation than that It is truly medicinal for the soul
