Show synopsis How much do we really know about anything? As someone else once said, it isn't what you don't know that does you harm, it's what you know that's wrong. "The Book of General Ignorance" sets out to show you how much of what you know is wrong, incorrect, piffle, nonsense. Now with added ignorance, this massive bestseller from Stephen Fry and the rest of the QI team is finally out in paperback. If, like Alan Davies, you still think the Henry VII had six wives, the earth has only one moon, that George Washington was the first president of the USA, that Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, that the largest living thing is a blue whale, that Alexander Graeme Bell invented the telephone, that whisky and bagpipes come from Scotland or that Mount Everest is the world's tallest mountain, then there are at least 200 reasons why this is the book for you.
