This review is from: The Ultimate Eggheads Quiz Book (Hardcover)
I rather liked the original Eggehads quiz book from 2007, and for the same reasons I quite like this one too. Like the original Eggheads quiz book this one is divided into sections, one being assigned to each Egghead. So Daphne heads up the Music section, Kevin the History section, Judith the Arts and Books, Dave the Sport, Barry the Science , Chris the Film and Television and Pat the Geography. Each section consists of 100 multiple choice questions, and then 100 general knowledge questions. That makes 1400 questions, and there are another 75 `killer questions' at the end, only half of which are multiple choice. If you're not a particularly serious quizzer, then this might well be for you. The general knowledge questions are not, for the most part, very difficult at all, although the specialist questions are a little more testing. The killer questions are mostly pretty hard, and serious quizzers might have liked a few more of these.
Fans of the show who bought the original quiz book a few years ago might remember that there was short section on each of the Eggheads. This has slightly more information about each of them, together with introductions from both Dermot and Jeremy, and an extremely sketchy section on the history of the show.
If you are a fan of the show, and if you are looking for a fairly wide ranging quiz book which has a lot of questions, the majority of which really aren't that difficult, then this could well be the sort of thing that you're looking for. Serious quizzers might want to try something with a greater degree of difficulty.
