“All the quotes ... like this are written by Chat GPT now. This one certainly is. When you’re writing and directing and performing in something you can’t waste time thinking of some pointless quote just to show off. No one reads beyond the first words anyway; because they just repetitively say how thrilled and excited everyone is. No one’s reading this now, are they? Only a fool would do that. Come on, there must be a book you could be reading now instead of this nonsense”
- Diane Morgan

Cunk on Everything: the Encyclopedia Philomena
Once in a blue moon, a book comes along that changes the world. The Origin of Species. War and Peace. 1984. The World According to Danny Dyer. And now, Cunk on Everything: The Encyclopedia Philomena, by Philomena Cunk. Cunk is one of the greatest thinkers of the 21st century, and here she turns her attention to our biggest issue: Why are there so many books? Wouldn't it be better if there were just one? This is that book--an encyclopedia of all human knowledge, from sausages to Henry VIII to Brush Strokes to vegetarian sausages.

Read it, and you'll never have to read another book again.
