Part 1 is an alphabetical arrangement not only of people real (Beethoven, Napoleon and George Washington) and imaginary (Rufus T. Flywheel, Walter Mitty, Bill Sikes), but also of pseudonyms (Cary Grant, Dr Seuss) and generic characters (The Man in Black, John Doe, The Barber in Peru). Dracula, Greyfriars Bobby, Robinson Crusoe, Lady Godiva, Mata Hari, Dick Turpin, Dick Whittington, Frank Winfield Woolworth, and Xantippe are just some of the bedfellows in this quirky and amusing guide. Part 2 groups names and gives further information to put them into context; here you will find Dickensian and Shakespearean characters, Presidents of the USA, Nobel Prizewinners, and a host of others in their contexts. The Book of Who? is an essential reference source for all enquiring minds, puzzle solvers, quiz buffs and general browsers.
