Now You Know Almost Everything: The Book of Answers, Vol. 3
Written by Doug Lennox.
Published by Dundurn Press, 2005.
|Building on the success of
Doug Lennox's previous two bestsellers, Now You Know and Now You Know
More, the third volume, Now You Know Almost Everything continues
with the same formula of dispensing knowledge concisely, never losing sight of
the joy and fun of discovering the why of ordinary things.
Why can't grooms see their bride on the day before the wedding? Why is a swindle called a double-cross? Why do people say, That's all she wrote? Why is a practice session called a dry-run? Where did the word Canuck come from? What is the origin of the word tip, as in tipping a waiter?
In his third book, Doug Lennox continues to trace the concise and fascinating history and reasons for hundreds of expressions in our everyday language, as well as customs and habits in the same entertaining format that was so successful in the earlier volumes. These gems are from the original syndicated radio scripts broadcast daily to millions across Canada through the Sound Source Network of Standard Broadcasting. Now You Know Almost Everything makes sure that you just about know it all.
