Bite size learning you can recite in the pub

I never get bored of what the QI Elves find out. Love it as always. Not always useful knowledge in day to day life but there will be a time when I need to know about winning a ‘lifetime’ supply of something (always read the small print!).
Look forward to more books! If you enjoyed this one always worthwhile reading the books from the ‘No Such Thing As A Fish’ podcast who are also the QI Elves.

Too many sound effects

I love listening to these types of books when relaxing and trying to sleep the sudden sound effects really throw you off when you’re just getting settled.

Ear size chunks of trivia


What’s not to love about fascinating facts that we have all probably thought of.

Great narration from the QI elves and lots of kids asking the questions.

A fascinating read

This listen is full of brilliant snippets that you probably don't know. ofcourse you nay know a few of them, but the rest are still very intriguingly.

Fun facts in an easy listen

was a good book to put on just before bed time, lots of interesting facts but nothing too deep for when you need your mind to relax.
