Sue Baker's view...

From the top BBC comedy show Pointless here are the 100 absolutely most pointless arguments to rot your brain. Quickly brushing aside the Why are we here question and that old favourite, Does God exist - yes or no -they get to the hardcore stuff and the debate over ballet or darts which is the more pointless and what element of a cooked breakfast could you leave out. Pointless to continue, pointless to point out that this is ideal Christmas gift potential too!

Synopsis

The 100 Most Pointless Arguments in the World by Alexander Armstrong, Richard Osman

From the presenters of the hit BBC One television series Pointless and authors of The 100 Most Pointless Things in the World comes a hilarious collection of answers to some of life's biggest questions. We've all had them, those pointless arguments that are seemingly impossible to solve. We've been round in circles trying to work out what came first, the chicken or the egg? Don't get us started on the debate of what we are all here for? And you're bound to have had sleepless nights pondering which ingredient you simply can't do without in a full English Breakfast - sausage or bacon. Well worry no more, here to help you solve some of life's biggest - and most pointless - conundrums, Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman attempt to answer the trickiest of teasers that we all face. So, does God exist? and what is the most pointless sport - ballet or darts? With a witty and intelligent collection of stand-up pieces, quizzes, cryptic brainteasers and pointless facts and questions, Alexander Armstrong and his pointless friend Richard Osman will put the world to rights and finally answer the 100 Most Pointless Arguments in the World...Ever.

Reviews

'I'm obsessed with Pointless Daniel Radcliffe Reviews for The 100 Most Pointless Things in the World Varied 'Pointless is a fascinating microcosm of life: as this formidable tome reveals, success therein depends on a combination of intelligence, chance and having a good partner.'
Sir Tim Rice

'I love Pointless. It's funny, and it makes me feel less thick. Like all the best dates.'
Sarah Millican

'We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name the greatest show in the history of television. There was only one pointless answer and it was Pointless. And now in book form.'
Stephen Fry

'The must-have present.' Kate Skipper, The Independent

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Jill Peters

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett
