Jack is a writer and historian and became something of a publishing phenomenon
in 2004/2005 when his first book Red Herrings and White Elephants, which
explored the origins of well-known phrases in the English language, became
a huge international best-seller.
All of his books investigate and reveal the history behind popular world culture. Albert teaches the history you never realised you wanted to know, until now.
