If you like QI you will probably love this

The switch up between the two narrators is nicely done and keeps you listening. Works really well in audio book form. Facts are -by enlarge- interesting and I've certainly retained more info than I have from the show.
Overall interesting and amusing with some useful facts to wow your friends with...

Unnecessarily essential

I'm a general knowledge junkie and loved how this book flipped my "knowledge" on its head. Well researched and well presented (read).

I have to work hard at not being that annoying guy at parties now. Hmm, how do I use this information for good and not evil...

My teenagers even listened in and enjoyed it so entertaining for anyone!

Awesome, but most of it was already in QI

If you could sum up QI: The Sound of General Ignorance in three words, what would they be?

Awesome, but I remember a large amount (60%) of the book from stuff that was on QI. Will likely listen to it again.

What did you like best about this story?

The info
