About the book

Everything is connected...

There is a connection between Buffalo Bill and Les Misérables. Chess has a connection with H.G. Wells’s martians ... if you know where to look. The trainers on your feet can be connected to the Greek goddess of victory, who is connected to an ingredient used in making Absinthe, which is connected to the voice of Dangermouse’s assistant Penfold, who is ...

Everything really is connected.

In this book, ex-London bobby and QI elf Stevyn Colgan takes you on a series of circular journeys through a world of connections embracing science, art, history and popular culture. You’ll learn why dipsticks upset the Nazis, how to turn Superman gay, why it would be easy to catch a bank robbing koala, and how a brand of foot powder came to be voted mayor of a village in Ecuador. Constable Colgan’s Connectoscope® offers you an entertaining glimpse into the hidden links between all things and challenges you to find new connections of your own.
