The long-standing Number Crunch newspaper column is a weekly bite of diverse but always fascinating stats and facts. This compendium is the first in a series (volume 2 will be available for Christmas) of books that bring together the very best of the facts, feats and stats discovered by author John Croucher over many years of compiling the column. This edition is completely revised and updated from the 2006 Macmillan edition (simply called Number Crunch and includes a fresh new suite of cartoons by Roger Harvey. Eighteen Months on the Toilet, by the way, refers to the length of time an average person will spend on the loo in their lifetime (allowing 8 hours a day off for sleeping): over 8,000 hours.

John S Crouchers newspaper columns that appear around the world. For many years the weekly Number Crunch column in the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age in Melbourne has provided riveting data to Australia.
