  1. The Second Book of General Ignorance Everything You Think You Know is Still Wrong by John Lloyd and John Mitchinson Crown Publishers 2010 031.02 This is a big book of short essays The essays serve to debunk commonly held truths and beliefs As it turns out, much of the shared store of general human knowledge is just plain wrong, as this book demonstrates over and over Some of the topics include How many legs does an octopus have , At what temperature does water freeze , and Where do you lose most [...]


  2. En az ilk kitabi kadar akici olan bu kitabin, tipki ilki gibi en buyuk eksikligi referans gostermemesi Ornek olarak, ucaklarin diskiyi asagi atmadigini soyleyen bolumu, sadece Ingiltere nin ucus kurallarina kati uyma zorunlulugu nedeniyle iyi uygulanabiliyor olabilir ama Turkiye de bazi firmalarin dondurulmus diskiyi ucaktan asagi attigi rapor edilmistirliyet gokten buzDolayisiyla kitapta gecen bu asla olmaz, boyle bir sey asla yapilmamaktadir gibi kesin ifadeler guclu referanslara dayandirilmad [...]


  3. As always, wonderfully entertaining for what it is It s a whole bundle of totally random facts, most of them setting right false assumptions naturally, it s not very organised, although there is a contents page if you want to try and skip to a specific point It s a pleasure to read, and I really liked that it has quotes from the show at the end of some sections the only problem is that then generally I ve seen the episode, so I m not ignorant about that particular subject.


  4. 49 Un libro basado o que se convirti en un programa de televisi n3.5 estrellasEste libro lo compr porque adoro totalmente el programa QI y apenas vi que uno de los libros de hecos curiosos escritos por las dos cabezas pensantes detr s del programa sab a que necesitaba tenerlo.Es un libro que disfrut mientras le a, pero que me costaba animarme a tomarlo en el primer lugar Al ser una recopilaci n de datos curiosos no es como si la intriga te mantiene al borde de tu asiento y te hace necesitar leer [...]


  5. Anyone who is a fan of the British television show, QI a mock game show, known for it s humor and intelligence knows how hard it is to see one of the books associated with the program and simply pass it by When I saw this I knew that I couldn t just leave it on the shelf, knowingly walking away from something that is connected to a group of people that I hold so dear in my squishy, nerdy heart Also, it has a bright yellow cover and you should know that yellow covers are a weak spot for me The fi [...]


  6. I ve become quite interested in factual books as of late and the second book of general ignorance is perfect to fill my need Facts are something that has always interested me and can be used in almost any situation Say you re at a party for instance and the party just isn t in swing mode but rather like an old people s home Throw a fact into the air, that ll get people talking or just have people looking at you weird while secretly making mental notes to avoid you for the rest of the night The Q [...]


  7. Very similar to the first book The idea wears thin after a while but was still interesting enough to get me through I think I ll wait a while before I read the animal edition.


  8. The Second Book Of General Ignorance was just as good as the first Who knew there are even facts you thought you knew but you actually didn t You may have to take a few days of resting after reading the first book so you can take in all the information, but when you are done realizing that your entire life has been a lie, you should take the time to read the sequel.


  9. If you like QI, or the QI Elves own spin off podcast No Such Thing as a Fish then this book will easily keep you entertained, whether you sit down and consume it in one go or choose to dip in and out and sample it in small morsels.


  10. Same with the first book, I love it In the first book they put in quotes that was read by Stephen Fry at the end of and episode while in the second book they have funny conversations of QI panelists for a particular topic.



  11. Entretenido e interesante en algunos cap tulos, aburrido y tedioso en otros Un libro lleno de datos curiosos, enfocado a un p blico Brit nico.


  12. A book to make you annoying, telling all your friends that they are actually wrong But well written and fun.Liked it.



  13. Allereerst, de Nederlandse titel is verkeerd en geeft een verkeerde indruk van de inhoud van het boek De originele titel is The Second Book of General Ignorance Everything You Think You Know Is Still Wrong , en moest dus vertaald worden als, bijvoorbeeld, algemene onwetenheid , aangezien er feitjes worden behandeld die je vroeger wel geleerd hebt, maar nu niet meer weet en ontkracht worden of die, afhankelijk van de omstandigheden, triviaal of irrelevant zijn Maar in elk geval zijn veel van de v [...]


  14. If you ve read my review of the original Q.I Book of General Ignorance then you ought to know roughly what to expect Lloyd and Mitchinson, the two men who were behind the show s creation in the first place, are back again to debunk some of the myths and misunderstandings that plague our modern society If you re anything like me then you like to be correct, and this book is the perfect book to help you be just that.I mean, this really is just an extension of the first book it s as simple as that [...]


  15. This book contains many amazing facts that you wouldn t believe to be true until you read it yourself It also contains an index telling where you can find which fact even those that aren t specifically about that fact but still in one of the paragraphs This allows one to better find things they want to read One of my few complaints is the fact that unlike the first book which contained many interesting quotes on the side this ones seem to have some comedic skits surrounding the subject which in [...]



  16. The book was fun I cannot possibly see water in the same light here after The end bang about immortal Turritopsis was awesome I never realized how much entertaining being wrong and then corrected was before the first book of general ignorance and this tome backs that up It was a scientific, historical and linguistic roller coaster ride that will not fade from my memory that easily.The book follows a simple pattern.Hey, you know this popular notion that you swear by Well, that s wrong This is rig [...]


  17. QI is one of the most insidiously anti intellectual programmes on television right now so harmful precisely because it presents itself as smart Its General Ignorance segment and, by extension, this book, distil the worst of it self satisfied, under sourced trivia, misinterpreted and at best though usually not even only technically correct, presented by smug idiots who think their lack of qualifications makes them, if anything, suited to talk down to the general public.Garbage like this used to [...]


  18. This is a rather silly book but it is perfect for bathroom reading, being divided into several hundred chapters by a QA format Like the first Book of General Ignorance 2006 , it draws on the British television game show Quite Interesting A quiz show, the last round of QI is called the General Ignorance round In it, questions to which the answers are seemingly obvious are asked but the answers are never what is commonly believed to be true The host of the television show, Stephen Fry, wrote the i [...]


  19. An interesting book, but it doesn t pack the same punch that the first one did I blew through the first one, and this one I had to force myself to get through One thing I didn t understand about this book is why the authors decided to punctuate it with their own quips and conversation snippets The jokes weren t funny though maybe that s just me , and a few times they were just absurd I started ignorning them about 1 3 of the way through I would say the original Book of General Ignorance gets 2 t [...]


  20. This has been sat in our bathroom along with a range of similar books, and I ve read it over the course over a few months by reading a question and answer every now and then and slowly working my way though the book I wouldn t recommend it to be read in one sitting, but it s enjoyable to read in small doses to learn something new While I imagine most people would dip in and out of it randomly, it s arranged thematically, with one question often leading into the next and works well being read in [...]


  21. It s not completely straight forward to review non fiction especially a book such as this without a specific subject , and which probably is read by most people as a toilet book or coffee table book This was, however, full of interesting trivia and pretty enjoyable mental strolls and I thought the theme of general ignorance i.e in disproving all those things which so many of us assume to be the case did work well, a lot better than many of those did you know books without as clear a remit.


  22. I love these books I love how it can twist everything you know and tell you everything you have been taught is wrong to some degree Who knew that Octopuses actually have two legs and Celtic priests wore horned helmets, not the Vikings I mean really This is a brilliant book for people who love facts, and love learning weird things that actually come in handy if you like to counteract what people think they know about everything There are a bunch in the QI book series and I implore you all to go [...]


  23. I bought this simply becayse I love the TV show so much, and I surprised myself by actually reading the entire book without skipping over some of the less interesting parts I had thought that I would do that, but the whole book was actually very entertaining At times really funny loved the little quotes from the TV show and mostly interesting in some way The only thing that was slightly annoying, was that I knew some of it already from watching QI on the television But I got over that Definitely [...]


  24. This was a fun read, and I learned quite a lot But there are so many facts in this book, I don t think I ll be able to remember most of it The questions are very diverse, so it never gets boring.Because the book is connected to my favorite TV show, Q.I I expect it to be very funny There are some funny bits quotes from the show, but it s not a very comical book overall That s not something that bothered me, just and expectation I had because of the show.A nice, informative, quick read.



  25. I started this book in April 2012 and only finished it now But don t let that put you off There wasn t a real reason for doing so, except for the fact it s the perfect book to dip in and out of, that there s no need to hurry through it If you re a fan of QI and just a fan in general of fact books, then you ll definitely get something out of this Now to give it back to my aunt, who s probably forgotten that she even owns this


  26. The first thing that came to mind in reading this book was Cecil Adams Straight Scoop column This seems to be a British take on the idea of researching trivial or outlandish topics More specifically, John Lloyd attempts to debunk popularly held beliefs Whether he always does this successfully, I think, is a matter of opinion However, the book is quite entertaining, full of all kinds of little factoids presented in a wry and amusing way.
