Product details

Product description


"The sheer scope of the research takes the breath away, and the humour is perfectly judged." (The Season’s Best Gift Books Spectator)

"Hugely enjoyable . . . Deserves to become an annual institution . . . Its tone is just right: deadpan, sharp and disarmingly offbeat." (5 * review, Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)

"The Book of the Year [is] a compendium of topical facts in 365 categories. It’s laced with their dry wit, and likely to end up in many a pub-quizzer’s Christmas stocking." (Daily Telegraph)

"A factually relevant look at a baffling 12 months." (Best Books for Christmas iNews)

"QI is such an institution that even the programme’s researchers are taking over the world. Fully justified that is too, as anyone who’s heard their podcast, No Such Thing As A Fish, will confirm. It’s packed with killer facts – and so is this book." (Daily Mail)

"If you love funny facts as much as we love funny facts then you should get your funny fact-loving faces in front of The Book of the Year." (Comedy Central (via @ComedyCentralUK))

"Absolutely ideal for the Christmas holidays." (Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 6 Music)

"A bumper anthology of ridiculous but true facts from the anoraks (and QI researchers) behind hit podcast No Such Thing As A Fish." (Metro)

"Both fantastically absorbing and entertaining." (The Bookseller)

"The Book of The Year will prove the perfect Christmas gift, the ideal conversation starter (and stopper), and the ultimate source of wisdom for all lovers of trivia." (British Comedy Guide)

Book Description

The team behind No Such Thing As A Fish return with another eye-opening tour of the incredible year you didn?t know you?d lived through.
