A Dictionary of Idiocy

Starting its journey with the Medieval writer Sebastian Brandt, who wrote "The Ship of Follies of the World" in 1509, even the perplexed will find their way through the maze of progress and common sense. An original miscellany for those who want their trivia served up with panache. The inspiration for this collection comes from Flaubert's "Dictionnaire des Idees Recues", published for the first time in October 1904.

About the Author

Starting life as an Art Historian, Stephen Bayley created the first interest in design as a subject of serious study. He has since become an outstpoken opinion maker on art, design and culture. He is a contributing editor of Esquire, a regular critic on television, and a helplessly prolific contributor to all national newspapers and magazines. Resigning from the Dome project as its red tape lengthened, he is fascinated by useless gadgets and once likened using Mercedes's radar-navigation as the nearest to becoming a smart-bomb.
