If you are weary of quiz books which appear to cater mainly for football and soap opera fans and you enjoy dredging your memory for the flotsam and jetsam of your wide (if not deep) reading, then this book is for you. (It might also help if you know that you don't dredge for flotsam). Like the quiz itself, the book is unashamedly elitist and enormous fun if you enjoy runnning the gauntlet of fiendishly specialised questions in the hope that, just occasionally, you may know the answer. It took me back to the days when I appeared on several University Challenge episodes. I couldn't believe how little I knew then and this collection of quizzes reminds me how little I know now.

I've been working through this for the last few months with my wife and there's always something for both of us (though we tend to skip the music questions). There's surprisingly little repetition given the thousands of questions and if you're at all interested in cryptic trivia, then this is for you. If you're not a fan of the series or its question format, I'd stay away.

*NOTE FOR KINDLE USERS* I'd be wary about buying the Kindle format version of this book. It's almost acceptable on the iPad where you can use bookmarks to skip between questions and answers but it's practically impossible to use on the Kindle devices. I hope future quiz books will have the answers by round instead of separated front-back!

As a trivia freak, I really enjoyed this book. Devilishly hard questions and some easier ones so that you don't throw the book across the room in frustration.
Wouldn't recommend it for trivia newbies, tho for quiz addicts, this is a must buy.

What an absolutely brilliant book! Bought this book at Christmas for my dad, who is a great lover of the TV show. It's brilliant. This is a must-have for any University Challenge geek!

Bought this book as I regularly watch the show and it does not dissapoint, the questions are equally challenging and enjoyable. Some features that is in the show that aren't in the book are music and picture rounds. I took this book to a friends house and a large group of us had a university challenge night, it was highly amusing and great fun I recommend to all. One downside is that the answers are all together at the back so it can be a tad awkward when flicking from the front to the back of the book with every question.

My son and daughter in law love University Challenge and compete with each other folliowing strictly the rules, so were delighted with this present and look forward to going backwards to questions posed years ago. It is a full book with hours of feeling adequate or inadequate! Wish I could be there with them, but will be soon when I will join in being a long term addict of UC.

An inspired idea for a Christmas present for our son-in-law. He really enjoys quizzes and particularly University Challenge. We even had a family quiz after all the festivities on Christmas Day. Full of intriguing facts; well woth the money for a person who likes this kind of thing.
