Now You Know: The Book of Answers

Our daily lives are filled with little sayings and habits that we don’t think much about. Many of them have their roots in history and were passed down from our ancestors, and though the reasons for them have often been forgotten, they linger still. Have you ever wondered:
- Why is there a best man at weddings and why are brides carried over the threshold?
- Why is an eager person “gung ho” and a coward “yellow”?
- Why is football played on a “gridiron” and a leg injury called a “charley horse”?
- Why do the British drive on the left and North Americans on the right?
The answers to these questions and the origins of hundreds of other expressions and customs are brought together in this fascinating collection based on the nationally-syndicated radio feature “Now You Know,” which reaches a daily audience of over a million Canadians. With all the conciseness of the original radio scripts, Doug Lennox tells you the things you always wanted to know.
