What’s the Difference?

How to Tell Things Apart That Are Confusingly Close

By Marc Tyler Nobleman

5 x 7, 176 pages, 2C, hardcover with PLC

Alligator and crocodile; partly cloudy and partly sunny; Daniel Boone and Davey Crockett: could you explain the differences between each of these things? Haven't you ever wondered? In the tradition of Schott's Original Miscellany comes What's the Difference?, a treasure trove for trivia lovers packed with facts, explanations, and specifics that illustrate the differences between things that are confusingly close.

Now when confronted by a confusing choice, you can find out which is what and why by consulting this fact-crammed compendium, which cleverly organizes puzzling terms in separate columns for easy, point-by-point comparison. Author Marc Tyler Nobleman has sniffed out the details that differentiate one thing from another, and explains them in a concise, clear, and entertaining style.
