The Third Book of General Ignorance gathers together 180 questions, both new and previously featured on the QIs popular General Ignorance round.
For the past decade, the QI team have been patiently correcting the myths, misunderstandings and misplaced certainties that go to make up general knowledge. The first Book of General Ignorance, published in 2006, became an instant international bestseller and has been translated into 29 languages. The Second Book of General Ignorance in 2010 set the record straight on hundreds more areas of everyday wrongness. Now, the QI team returns to complete the trilogy. The Third Book of General ignorance gathers together 180 more questions to which the answers all seem perfectly obvious. Some have appeared in the BBC TV programmes General Ignorance round, but many appear here for the first time. What they prove, beyond all reasonable doubt, is that none of us know anything at all.
