Reviews

  • "The sheer scope of the research takes the breath away, and the humour is perfectly judged."

    The Season’s Best Gift Books, Spectator
  • "Hugely enjoyable . . . Deserves to become an annual institution . . . Its tone is just right: deadpan, sharp and disarmingly offbeat."

    5 * review, Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
  • "The Book of the Year [is] a compendium of topical facts in 365 categories. It’s laced with their dry wit, and likely to end up in many a pub-quizzer’s Christmas stocking."

    Daily Telegraph
  • "A factually relevant look at a baffling 12 months."

    Best Books for Christmas, iNews
  • "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."

    Daily Mail
  • "If you love funny facts as much as we love funny facts then you should get your funny fact-loving faces in front of The Book of the Year."

    Comedy Central (via @ComedyCentralUK)
  • "Absolutely ideal for the Christmas holidays."

    Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 6 Music
  • "A bumper anthology of ridiculous but true facts from the anoraks (and QI researchers) behind hit podcast No Such Thing As A Fish."

    Metro
  • "Both fantastically absorbing and entertaining."

    The Bookseller
  • "The Book of The Year will prove the perfect Christmas gift, the ideal conversation starter (and stopper), and the ultimate source of wisdom for all lovers of trivia."
