Product description

Proof that it’s the big lies that change the world. Confucius. Washington. Shakespeare. Pythagoras. Homer. Rumbled! Heard the famous saying, ‘it’s the big lies that get believed’? Well, history is full of famous liars. Some of the ‘greatest’ names of all time can be found in this book – and the light isn’t flattering. (We’re looking at you, George ‘I must not tell a lie’ Washington.) Read about twelve humongous fibbers and their whopping porky pies. All in a full-colour book of unbelievable facts you’ll want to repeat to everyone.

  • A funny, fascinating new look at key historical figures
  • Tells the real stories of twelve famous history-makers
  • Reveals the lies they told, and the legends they created
  • Written in a hilariously irreverent, entertaining style
