Hes possibly the only man in Britain whom Nick Hornby is jealous of - because his team beat Hornbys in a pub quiz and went on to win the EVENING STANDARD knockout tournament.This hilarious book will do for quiz culture - from Mastermind to Fifteen to One to the quiz in your local - what LOST IN MUSIC did for bad rock bands. Thousands of people take part in quizzes every week answering questions such as who won the League Cup in 1972 (Stoke City beat Chelsea 3-2) and which of Henry VIIIs wives was both a widow and a virgin when she married him (Catherine of Aragon)?Funny, informative, original: this book has all the answers - including the one to question six.
