Description

Why are golf assistants called caddies? Why do the British drive on the left and North Americans on the right? Why is football played on a 'gridiron', and a leg injury called a 'Charlie horse'? The answers to these questions and the origins of hundreds of other expressions and customs are brought together in this fascinating collection of the history behind everyday words and routines. With all the conciseness of his original radio scripts, Doug Lennox 'cuts to the quick' in telling you the things you always wanted to know.
