The authors of the bestselling NOT THE HIGHWAY CODE shine a light on the extensive back catalogue of dodgy predictions through the ages.The first end of the world prediction was recorded one second after the Big Bang and since then it has become the daddy of all predictions with, to date, no one getting it right. And human beings have been around for about 200,000 years, with very little evolutionary difference, and yet we still haven't developed X-Ray eyes or the ability to fly.In this book, Baddiel and Zucker examine the predictions that have been made since the dawn of time on a variety of subjects, from the end of the world and the human body, to global warming, robots in the workplace, teleportation and space exploration. With a witty and fresh tone, they examine how these predictions came about and why, and rate them for retrospective accuracy.

Fed up with the near impossible challenge of finding parking spaces in English cities, Jonny Zucker designed and built his own 'Tiny' Car. Fast enough to get him from London to Carlisle in eight minutes, but small enough to fit into his jacket pocket, the Tiny Car has revolutionised his life. With a patent pending, the car can be parked anywhere in mainland Europe. Since he made the prototype, offers have come flooding in from around the world. Unfortunately these were all spam - offering him the chance to buy timeshares in Latvian coastal properties. He thinks that driving is 'good' but feels walking may be a tad more environmentally friendly. In addition Jonny Zucker has written over 30 books and has performed over 100 stand up comedy gigs.For more, visit the website www.jonnyzucker.co.uk.
