Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brain Men: The Insider's Guide to Quizzing (Paperback)
Marcus Berkmann's hilarious and insightful thoughts and observations on the British pub-quiz obsession is guaranteed to give the average trivia nut hours of pleasurable reading.
It really is fantastic - giving us step-by-step explanations about quizzes; quiz teams, and quiz questions in Berkmann's unique and idiosyncratic manner. He also throws in random facts and trivia and humorous musings and observations.
As a massive fan of his previous works such as Rainmen and Zimmermen, this has made my cold winter nights on deployment down in the Falklands far more bearable. It also reminds me uncannily of my pub team back in the UK, as we regularly struggle to get near the top prizes at the Hop Pole Inn, in Aylesbury.
