Magnus Magnusson's Family Quiz Book by Magnus Magnusson
Book DescriptionAs what is the painting La Gioconda better known? Upon which city is the original game of Monopoly based? Whose portrait is on the reverse side of current Bank of England GBP50 notes? From Magnus Magnusson, presenter of BBC's Mastermind for twenty-five years, comes the complete quiz book, perfect for both the serious contestant and for family fun. Echoing the television show's classic twin formula of specialist subjects and general knowledge, the book contains over one thousand carefully graded questions (together with the all-important answers). It offers a question list far superior to the usual stock pub quiz fodder. Many of the questions have been chosen for their unusual answers, or for the surprising stories behind them. The specialist subjects include topics of particular interest to Magnus, such as Norse Mythology and perfume; and for the most hardened of quiz enthusiasts, there are a smattering of old favourites from Mastermind itself.
