Philip Gooden read English at Magdalen College, Oxford, and then taught at secondary school level for many years. In 2001 he became a full-time writer. He was chairman of the Crime Writers' Association in 2007-8 and is part of the writing collective, The Medieval Murderers. He has also written Faux Pas? and Who's Whose? A No-Nonsense Guide to Easily Confused Words, and recently a series of mystery novels featuring Geoffrey Chaucer.
This is a wonderfully eclectic collection of life's informal rules and principles. There are fascinating background stories to the most famous examples such as Parkinson's Law. Meanwhile Stigler's Law is just one of many everyday truisms to which I can now attach a name.
