Wordsworth Book of Pub Quizzes by David Rothwell
Book DescriptionThe pub quiz has become a fixture in the social life of the nation, but the prospective quizmaster is faced with a perennial quandary: make the questions too hard and you guarantee a long and painful evening; too easy and you have a multiple tie for first place. David Rothwell (author of the A to Z of English Literature and the Dictionary of Homonyms) has comeup with an elegant solution. The first letter of the answers in all of the 240 quizzes in this book create a sentence, giving the contestants just that little extra inspiration to pluck the correct answer from the ether. Tried and tested in the hostelries of Bristol, these quizzes will provide an erudite and enlightening evening's entertainment.
