Read full description of the books:
This is the book that proves that Birmingham is not just the crucible of the Industrial Revolution, but the cradle of civilisation.
From the team behind hit Birmingham miscellany, Paradise Circus, comes the definitive guide to the 101 things that made the world what it is today - and all of them were made in Birmingham.
Read how Birmingham gave the world the wonders of tennis, nuclear war, the Beatles, 'that smell of eggs' and many more… 97 more.
“101 Things Birmingham Gave The World, is not a Birmingham of the memory. It is a living breathing thing, wrestling with the city’s contradictions, press-ganging the typically arch and understated humour of the Brummie, and an army of little-known facts, both trivial and monumental, into reshaping its confusing reputation.”

Jon wrote and directed the first ever piece of drama to be performed on Twitter. Back in 2008 he persuaded a cast including MP Tom Watson to give over their timelines to perform Twitpanto: a full length piece of theatre that spun its story out into the unsuspecting online world. As founding the famous blog Birmingham: It's Not Shit, he's also organised psychogeographic trips around Birmingham's Outer Circle, measured the emotional wellbeing of the city and started Talk Like a Brummie Day. He currently edits Paradise Circus: A Birmingham Miscellany.
In 2014 he published 101 Things Birmingham Gave the World, with a foreword written by Stewart Lee. His new book, Pier Review, is about visiting every seaside pier in England and Wales and has been described as "On the Road meets On the Buses".
