A Book to Savour and Digest,
This review is from: The Book of General Ignorance (A Quite Interesting Book) (Hardcover)
The books is a spin off from the enormously successful BBC2 series QI. If you love the programme you will certainly love the book. If you have never seen the programme, you will probably still love the book.
For those people who enjoy trivia and most people do, myself included, this is a great book to sit down and relax with by the fireside on a cold winter's night. It takes commonly held beliefs and runs them full pelt through the shredder (was Santa Claus really Turkish).
The book is written in a witty way, and the great thing is that armed with all the new facts you now know, you could if you so desired win a few quid in bets and get the price of the book back. Now there's a thought.
