Julius Caesar and Isaac Newton were left-handed. So are Paul McCartney and Bill Gates. Intriguingly, a disproportionate number of US presidents have also been lefties.

Why is it that such a high number of left-handed people feature in influential moments throughout history? Through fascinating case studies of notables from ancient to modern times, Ed Wright explains the secret of lefty success. Psychology meets history in this enlightening and entertaining look behind being left-handed and its effects on our world.

The list of successful and influential people of the 'sinister nation' - from Alexander the Great to Joan of Arc, Henry Ford to Jimi Hendrix - will wow both left - and right-handers. Exploring the defining character traits of these and other famous lefties, we discover how much the world has gained from those who look at life from the other side.
