KARLOLOGY:What I've Learnt So Far (Karl Pilkington) by Geoffrey Valentine

Back in 2008 KP produced another cracking book filled with all the drivel we’ve come to love and expect.
Written in a first-person stream of consciousness style and filled with hilarious digressions and misguided observations, Karlology’s chapters each focus on a single trip by Karl to an exhibition or museum.In Karl’s never-ending quest for knowledge, each visit is an opportunity to explore a different area of academic interest, from science, to art to the human body.Each chapter recounts, first person, Karl’s confused, bemused and distracted response to the facts he is presented with. 157 more words
