LoveReading View on Qi: The Book Of General Ignorance

What is truth and what is hogwash? This is the question that The Book of General Ignorance asks. Did Henry VIII have six wives, does Earth have only one moon? If you still think so, then you badly need this book to right your wrongs. Thomas Edison stated that we know less than one millionth of one percent about anything; Mark Twain thought it would take 8 million years to master mathematics alone; Woody Allen said that some drink deeply from the river of knowledge, but others only gargle. A comprehensive and humiliating catalogue of all the misconceptions, mistakes and misunderstandings in 'common knowledge', which will make you wonder why anyone ever bothers to go to school.

Qi: The Book Of General Ignorance Synopsis

Compendium of popular misconceptions, misunderstandings and common mistakes culled from the hit BBC show, QI. Published to coincide with the fourth series broadcast in September 2006.
