Book Description

QI: The Book of General Ignorance - The Noticeably Stouter Edition by John Lloyd and John Mitchinson is an essential companion to QI, BBC 2 and BBC 4's highest rated show.

From the Back Cover

This comprehensive catalogue of all the misconceptions, mistakes and misunderstandings in 'common knowledge' will make you wonder why anyone bothers going to school.

More than 25% longer, with extra cartoons, hilarious extracts from the TV show and 50 new things you didn't know, including:

No one has ever slid down a banister

There are 613 commandments in the Bible

Vipers, cobras and rattlesnakes are not poisonous

Newborn babies are indifferent to their mothers

The Swiss Family weren't called Robinson

The unluckiest date is Monday the 27th

You have no muscles in your fingers

Coffee isn't made from beans

Completely revised, corrected and plumped up, it now includes an index and an appendix listing all the celebrities who have appeared on 'QI' to date.

If you like Qi, you will love this book!
This 'stouter' edition is almost identical albeit a tad longer than the original with about 20 additional topics.
The 'facts' are very interesting - though, IMHO, some are more than little debable.
Nevertheless, I thought it was brilliant and couldn't put it down until I had read it cover to cover.
Excellent and a pleasing purchase.
