5.0 out of 5 stars Best in Class, 19 April 2011
This review is from: The Prince of Wales (Highgate) Quiz Book (Paperback)
i've read a decent number of quiz books over the years - partly for fun and partly for inspiration in setting the occasional local quiz. This selection is simply head and shoulders above the rest. With most quiz books I get a reasonable smattering of questions which I have come across before. In this case there were very few I had come across before. They are well crafted, well written and will mostly not become redundant with age.

A word of caution, however, I think that anyone just taking this book and using it as the source for a complete quiz would be taking quite a risk unless the participants are pretty hardened quizgoers. There aren't many easy questions here and I could see some of the people who attend our local quizzes losing heart.

But that's not a reason for not using this book. If used judiciously as a source for the more interesting and challenging questions it will provide questions for a large number of quizzes.

Or, of course, you could just read it for the sheer pleasure of acquiring knowledge in an entertaining fashion.

Brilliant.
