I haven't read much yet but so far I'm disappointed. I bought this book because I absolutely loved the QI Book of the Dead of brief but fascinating biographies of famous (and some not so famous) people and I hoped it would be something similar for animals but it isn't. Each animal is covered in only two pages, leaving me wanting more information - you just get to a bit of intriguing information then it's cut off to suit the page limit. The choice of information to include is often rather childish - there seems to be an obsession about the size of various animals' penises, but I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by such schoolboy humour, having watched the programme. I'd change it from QI to NTI - not that interesting. Sorry!
