Another Book of Family Fun 5 Oct 2014
By Timothy Haugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Readers of my reviews will know of my fondness for the show QI and the books that have been derived from it. The books fall into two types—one, in which the text basically comes from the show itself and explains the strange and quite interesting truth behind ideas that are often misunderstood or misremembered, and another, which is basically a list of quite interesting facts. Obviously, this book falls into the second category.

Less obvious might be how much fun this type of book is. My family is getting to enjoy when I’m reading one of these because I’ll periodically feel the need to share a fact I find particularly fascinating. I consider myself fairly well-educated and fairly well-read; however, though I’m aware of some of these facts, I’m always surprised at how much I don’t know. It’s something of which I like to be reminded occasionally. This is a good book with which to do that.

I bought this for my 10 year-old grandson. However, his 34 year-old mother could not put it down, and she kept interrupting our conversation with new found facts.
