The Subtitle That Changed The World

Consider these titles:

- Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World

- The Measure of All Things: The Seven-Year Odyssey and Hidden Error That Transformed the World

- Robbing the Bees: A Biography of Honey -- The Sweet Liquid Gold That Seduced the World

- 1968: The Year That Rocked the World.

- Pickled, Potted, and Canned: How the Art and Science of Food Preserving Changed the World

- The Pill: A Biography of the Drug That Changed the World

Spot anything in common?


  • They all follow the cliched "title: subtitle" format that plagues so many non-fiction books?? :))
