  • "Hugely enjoyable . . . Deserves to become an annual institution . . . Its tone is just right: deadpan, sharp and disarmingly offbeat."

  • "QI is such an institution that even the programme’s researchers are taking over the world. Fully justified that is too, as anyone who’s heard their podcast, No Such Thing As A Fish, will confirm. It’s packed with killer facts – and so is this book."
