A Quite Interesting Book

The Book of General Ignorance

The Noticeably Stouter Edition

By John Lloyd (Producer of TV’s popular general knowledge quiz ‘QI’) and John Mitchinson (Chief Researcher for TV’s popular general knowledge quiz ‘QI’).

A brand-new edition of the UK No1 bestseller, inspired by BBC2’s smash-hit comedy quiz game QI.

This comprehensive catalogue of all the misconceptions, mistakes and misunderstandings in ‘common knowledge’ will make you wonder why anyone bothers to go to school. More than 25% longer, with extra cartoons, hilarious extracts from the TV show, and 50 new things you didn’t know, including:

No one has ever slid down a banister

There are 613 commandments in the Bible

Vipers, cobras and rattlesnakes are not poisonous

Newborn babies are indifferent to their mothers

The Swiss Family weren’t called Robinson

The unluckiest date is Monday the 27th

You have no muscles in your fingers

Coffee isn’t made from beans

EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU KNOW IS WRONG

A fascinating book, the perfect gift for anyone in your life who loves knowledge, or who thinks they know it all! Even better in combination with 'Lateral Thinking Puzzles'.

About the size of a normal novel, so perfect for reading in bed, on the train or while eating your sandwiches.
