Just like the TV show, this book is filled with fascinating tidbits on everything you can think of. It's amusingly written and will make you question lots of things you take for granted.

For example, "What's the tallest mountain in the world?" Nope, it's not Everest. "How many wives did Henry VIII have?" No, it's not six.

Highly recommended.

Pretty boring read. Some expected gems inside, but the majority is some irrelevant stuff about UK-related things I have never thought about (and for a good reason). Examples?

"Which organization invented Quaker Oats?", "What illness do British doctors treat most often?", "Which aeroplane won the Battle of Britain?", "When did the last survivor of the Crimean war die?", "What nationality was the Duke of Wellington?", "Who invented the Penny Post?", "Who was Britain's first Prime Minister?", etc, etc, etc...
