Everything You Think You Know is Still Wrong Television tie-in edition
QI: The Second Book of General Ignorance by John Lloyd
Book DescriptionOctopuses have six legs. Oranges aren't orange. Bats aren't blind. Napoleon wasn't short. Vikings didn't wear horned helmets. Diamond isn't the hardest substance. Bank notes aren't made of paper. Testosterone doesn't make you aggressive. Cheese doesn' t give you nightmares. There is no such thing as a fish. The original Book of General Ignorance was published in 2006. It has since been translated into 26 languages and sold over 1.2 million copies. Now, just when you thought it was safe to start showing off again, the QI team are back with another lorry-load of mistakes and misunderstandings. The Second Book of General Ignorance is the essential set text for everyone who's proud to admit that they don't know everything, and an ideal stick with which to beat people who think they do.
