"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," - Goodreads Review.
John Mitchinson is the head of research for the British television panel game QI, and is also the managing director of Quite Interesting Limited.

The two men are normally referred to as "The Two Johns" and are seen as the main controllers of QI, as they do most of the research of the show.
