THE BLUFFER'S GUIDES (WOLFE PUBLISHING)
Series Note:
Each book in this series of small, humorous books was written by an expert with the aim of giving you a little knowledge and allowing you to pass yourself off before friends and work colleagues as an expert yourself in the chosen field.

A taste of this series' amusing tongue in cheek style can be seen in the opening sentences of The Bluffer's Guide to the Classics (Oval Books, 2005):

In these days of scholars of Peace Studies and BAs (Hons) in Countryside Recreation Participation, there has never been a better or easier time to become a distinguished bluffer in the Classics. As Greece comes to mean holidays and Italy pasta, as fewer and fewer people know or care who Homer was or what Brutus did, the opportunities for dazzling bluff in the Classics have become limited only by your imagination.

This series, originally published by Peter Wolf of Wolf Publishing in the United Kingdom, was later republished - with a number of new titles added - in the United States by Centennial Press (the same people who published CliffNotes) and by Crown Publishers.

The series was also republished - with many more new titles - in the United Kingdom by Ravette Publishing, by Oval Books and by the Bluffer's Media Limited (http://www.bluffers.com). For this republication the series editor was Anne Tauté and the cover designers were Rob Oliver and Vicki Towers. These titles were distributed in the U.S. by Globe Pequot Press.

The terms "Bluffer's Guides", "Bluffer's Guide", "Bluffer's" and "Bluff Your Way" are all registered trademarks. However, occasionally similarly named titles appear such as How to Be Oxbridge by Anton Gill (HarperCollins, 1985).
