About this deal

Marcus Berkmann drew attention to the over-abundance of similarly themed books (to which the QI title—and series—clearly owe a certain debt), commenting that: Stephen Fry presents this comedy panel game where artistic licence is king. Fry is joined by four others each episode and the point of the game is to come up with the most elaborate answer, as opposed to actually being right.

The Book of General Ignorance contains a list of 230 questions, most of which previously appeared in episodes of QI. Each question explains the correct answer, and usually attempts to show why people tend to make the wrong assumptions, or believe certain myths. Each book contains two forewords, one by Fry, the other by Davies. Davies' initial "foreword" was credited as "Four words," which read simply: "Will this do, Stephen?"

We already provide commission-free software and zero Channel Manager fees, but we wanted to go above and beyond by introducing something completely free of charge. Response to the book has been mostly positive, both critically and commercially. Critic Jennifer Kay said, " The Book of General Ignorance won't make you feel dumb. It's really a call to be more curious." [18] Liesl Schillinger in The New York Times praised the book for gathering "so much repeatable wisdom […] in one place," asking the rhetorical question of interested parties—"In the Information Age, can you afford to remain ignorant of these precious factoids?"

It’ll be an absolutely winning Christmas read."

The second interactive QI DVD. It should be pointed out that QI Presents: Strictly Come Duncing has little to do with dancing and nothing to do with presents. A book of the show has become all but necessary, if only to allow us to ingest this information at normal brain speed, and because such fine and creative research genuinely deserves to be captured in print. So it's slightly disappointing that the book arrives in the question-and-answer format made so familiar by last year's big hit Does Anything Eat Wasps? There are actually about 20 such books out this year, all asking these quirky questions (Do Sheep Shrink in the Rain? Do Fish Drink Water?), all piled up in Waterstones, making book-buyers feel a bit depressed.

People who have not received a notification may also be eligible to book using the service.
