Michael Jackson

Berlusconi, Beatles, Obama, God, Michael Jackson, LOST and Picasso - there's cliff notes for everything in the book Life In 5 seconds. See also the commercials, Vincent Van Gogh, Alice in Wonderland, the Beatles and the five second explanation of "Call of Duty". Life in five seconds is a book with 200 stories for our jet-fuelled, caffeine-induced, celebrity-a-minute world.

Life in Five Seconds takes 200 world events, inventions, great lives, places, animals and cultural icons that you really need to know about, and then, hey presto!, cuts away all the useless details.

The Last Supper, Lady Gaga, the moon landings, the Mona Lisa, the invention of electricity, Ikea, the Berlin Wall, celebrity chefs and everything in-between. This is the perfect gift for anyone with a sense of humour … and a short attention span.

Stocking stuffer for the ones you aren't buying the Joe La Pompe book " 100 Visual Ideas, 1000 Great Ads" for.
