Présentation de l'éditeur

The indispensable compendium of popular misconceptions, misunderstandings and common mistakes culled from the hit BBC show, QI.

The noticeably stouter QI Book of General Ignorance sets out to show you that a lot of what you think you know is wrong. If, like Alan Davies, you still think the Henry VIII had six wives, the earth has only one moon, that George Washington was the first president of the USA, that Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, that the largest living thing is a blue whale, that Alexander Graeme Bell invented the telephone, that whisky and bagpipes come from Scotland or that Mount Everest is the world's tallest mountain, then there are at least 200 reasons why this is the book for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Book of General Awesomeness! 2 mai 2011
Par Bart C. Line - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I am a huge fan of the show QI, and have always found it to be a fun and hilarious way to gain knowledge. So when I saw that there was a way to do so in print, I bought this book.

It has a huge variety of interesting facts covering a massive variety of subjects, there truly is something to interest everyone. From common myths (such as swimming after eating, strongest muscle in the body, etc.) to just plain interesting facts that you never knew, you will be pleasently surprised by how much you thought you knew and didn't!

I haven't read the original book (this one contains more facts) but they do a great job of marking the new chapters to let readers of the previous easily tell if they've read it before (the chapter is clearly marked with "new entry!").

And if you're a fan of the show, possibly the best bit of the book- at the end of some (not all, I'm guessing it's the chapters of the facts that have been discussed on the program) of the chapters, there are quotes from various panelists that will have you laughing out loud!

The chapters are fairly short which allows you to easily take a break without feeling like you're stopping in the middle of something, and it's great to sit down and read for long stretches of time or if you just have a few minutes to kill waiting at the doctors office.

All in all a great read, nothing too heavy, but definitely very interesting. You will be impressed by the facts and will undoubtedly impress everyone around you!

I'm sure there must be folks out there who hate random snippets of knowledge and don't care who actually invented the telephone, why geese were once thought to be a kind of fish or even a vegetable, whether one can die by eating too many potatoes, what Richard Gere's middle name is, or which nation consumes the most Spam. But in all honesty, I don't know why any of them would buy this book.

If, like me, you enjoy finding out that Eskimos buy refrigerators to stop their food from getting to cold, or why a paperclip was an emotive symbol in Norway during WWII, or having your curiosity piqued to realise that scientists don't know how ants manage to have a photographic memory or that the best place to find a hitherto unknown to science species is in your own back garden, then this will be right up your street.

As an extra added bonus for fans of the show, there are snippets of dialogue from various episodes, which are generally funny and sometimes howlingly so.

So if you would like to find out what rhymes with orange, why banana plants walk, or which sea mammals served as part of the Task Force in Iraq, snap this up and enjoy.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating! 18 décembre 2012

Covering a vast range of topics, this book explores myths and generalizations we've all taken for granted, explains the real truth and is very enlightening. The comments below each entry are amusing, but the information itself is detailed without being boring, and very complete. Makes me want to go to school all over again, this time armed with this book!

The amount of interesting knowledge in this book is astounding. If you like the TV show, get the book. It basically covers everything from the first couple of seasons. Almost word for word in some cases.

Half the human beings who have ever died, perhaps as many as 45 billion people, have been killed by female mosquitoes (the males only bite plants). &quote;

Whats quite interesting about Scotland, kilts, bagpipes, haggis, porridge, whisky and tartan? None of them is Scottish. &quote;

Astoundingly, light is invisible. You cant see the light itself, you can only see what it bumps into. A beam of light in a vacuum, shining at right angles to the observer, cannot be seen. Although this is very odd, its quite logical. If light itself was visible, it would form a kind of fog between your eyes and everything in front of you. Darkness is equally strange. Its not there but you cant see through it. &quote;
