The latest QI Annual, 'H', to accompany the new top-rated BBC1 TV series
About the Author
John Lloyd has a broadcasting background. As a radio producer he devised The News Quiz and To the Manor Born before moving to television to start Not the Nine O'Clock News, Spitting Image, and Blackadder. If pressed, he'd concur with Heraclitus: 'abundance of knowledge does not teach men to be wise.'
John Mitchinson is from the world of books. The original Marketing Director of Waterstone's, he became Managing Director of Cassell, where he published The Beatles, Michael Palin and Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. He's with Einstein: 'There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.'

The book reads like an encyclopedia of back-stories, journalistic scoops, and truths revealed--making the comic-book design references all the more appropriate as the dark sidestreets, and unlit back-alleys of history are combed for their stories.
A veritable deluge of details, and engrossing (even when it's gross!) the QI 2011 Annual ia a delightful garden path down which to stray.
