Summary

Read by Diane Morgan as Philomena Cunk, the star of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe and Cunk on Britain. 

A parody encyclopedia from the star of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe and Cunk on Christmas.

In the olden days, people used to learn about things from encyclopedias.

And that was really good, because you could read it, and learn it, then you could stop worrying about thinking. But now, with the Internet and more people and science and research, there's just too much knowledge - more every year - and it's overwhelming.

So, after years of asking the big questions - like 'what did people do before evolution?' and 'what is clocks?' - intrepid reporter and visionary philosopher Philomena Cunk is bringing the encyclopedia back with this definitive guide to everything you will ever need to know about, from Shakespeare to sausages, from evolutionary psychology to brush strokes.

Critic reviews

"This book is great because it covers everything in existence apart from the 95% of stuff not worth bothering with." (Philomena Cunk, star of Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe, Moments of Wonder and Cunk on Britain)
