Description - Qi: the Book of General Ignorance - the Noticeably Stouter Edition by John Mitchinson

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.

Buy Qi: the Book of General Ignorance - the Noticeably Stouter Edition by John Mitchinson from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.

Author Biography - John Mitchinson

John Lloyd was the producer of Not The Nine O'Clock News, Spitting Image and Blackadder. He started The News Quiz, Quote . Unquote, The News Huddlines and To The Manor Born and played a key role in The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and Mr Bean, shooting TV commercials in his spare time. For most of the 1980s he went without lunch and slept for four hours a night. He won an absurd number of prizes and got very, very tired.John Mitchinson started off in publishing where he was the marketing manager of Waterstone's. Combining his skills with John Lloyd meant that opening a bookshop in the QI building was inevitable. John is a man who likes to read, eat and drink, and who now gets paid to do all three simultaneously.
