About the author:

Although this might change in the future, at the time of writing this review there was no information on the author available.

My review:

I have long been a fan of trivia and quizzes, be it on TV, radio, or in written form. I find it really difficult to resist when I see a post or a video inviting me to test my knowledge on a topic I have even a passing interest in. So when the author suggested I might be interested in his book, I couldn’t say no.

And for anybody who is like me, this is a treat. It’s a long book, with 4000 questions and answers on a variety of topics. They are organised by categories (animals, nature & science, geography, history, people & places, religion & mythology, holidays, art & literature, entertainment, movies, music, and sports & leisure), and each quiz consists of five questions, although there are many different quizzes under each subheading, and they could be easily combined, or even different questions from the different subjects picked and mixed, as it were, to create an innumerable number of general knowledge quizzes.

The questions range from odd and wonderful facts to those that test one’s breadth of knowledge on a topic, and there are also funny cartoons to mark the beginning of each new category.

I have only had access to an e-book copy, and the format followed there were four quizzes (five questions each), followed by the answers to each of those quizzes, then four more quizzes…  Lovers of games and organisers of quizzes and parties, in general, might want to check the paperback, as it might be more suitable for those kinds of activities.

As somebody who tries to help students improve their level of English, I thought this book could be a fun way of introducing vocabulary on a variety of topics, and also of introducing an element of game and competition into a class, which is always welcome. I will definitely study it carefully and make good use of it.

Recommended to lovers of trivia, games, and those who are always on the lookout for new ways to entertain friends and to learn new things.

And a couple more things:

As we are talking about quizzes, I couldn’t resist leaving you the link to Nik Nak’s Old Peculiar, a blog I’ve been following for a while, where Paul shares a new quiz every day, and also reviews (especially of films and TV series). He has experience running pub quizzes, so you are bound to enjoy it. I visit almost every day, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to share his blog. And I would also recommend that you subscribe to his YouTube channel if you prefer the video format (he shares his videos on his blog as well):

And, last but not least, following on my blog post about learning Spanish, I was asked to share any new videos I produced. So here is the next one. We’re going shopping for food. It’s a bit longer, so better grab something to eat before you get started!

Thanks to Louis, to Paul, to all of you for reading, watching, clicking, and everything else, and remember to keep reading, sharing, reviewing, and always keep smiling! And keep safe!

Thanks, Teagan. I enjoy many of these quizzes and programmes (I’m a big fan of QI, a British TV program and also University Challenge, although I didn’t get that many right). And thanks for your comment about the video. It ended up being a much longer lesson than I planned, but although I think the next one will take a bit more time to come, I will try to make it shorter. Take care and have a lovely week. Huge hugs!

I got all the questions except the first one. I used to be really good at Trivial Pursuit, except for the sport questions! And I once ‘won’ a million pounds playing the home version of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’. Not sure I would buy a quiz book though, unless I was running a pub quiz or similar. And a lot of this stull is free online too. But if it is marketed correctly, it could do well.
Best wishes, Pete.

Thanks, Pete. I got one of the QI books from NetGalley a few years back (I love QI) and really enjoyed it, although it’s not something you just sit and read, that’s true. It makes for good reading for a short break or for those times when we can’t concentrate on something for very long. And it’s a good point of conversation, if you can remember the facts they mention, that is! I have the same problem with sports questions, and now that I am back in Spain, I realise I don’t know much about recent TV programmes or music either. Oh, well!
Have a fabulous week!

This sounds fabulous. Like you, I loveeeeeeee games and puzzles! You’re killing me Olga! LOL. I notice that many of your reviews are for not yet released books, so I add them to my wish list. I will definitely wait for the paperback version of this book. Thanks for sharing. <3

Thanks, Debby. I try to review the books after their release date (and this author told me his book had been released), but sometimes books are not released at the same time everywhere, so it’s a bit tricky. Other times I might be overeager, but I try to make sure people don’t have to wait too much. Sometimes publishers and authors like a bit of anticipation… If you enjoy quizzes and games, you’re in for a treat! Take care!;)

Well you can’t control the publishers Olga. Lol, that’s why I always hop on the book link and add it to my list – otherwise I’d never remember <3
