Left-Handed History of World
Allen & Unwin, 2007 - 256 sider
Julius Caesar and Isaac Newton were left-handed. So were Paul McCartney and Bill Gates. Intriguingly, a disproportionate number of U.S. presidents have also been lefties. Why is it that such a high number of left-handed people feature in influential moments throughout history? Through fascinating case studies of notables from ancient to modern times, Ed Wright explains the secret of lefty success. Psychology meets history in this enlightening and entertaining look behind being left-handed and its effects on our world. --inside cover.
