Reviews

An endlessly fascinating book, and dull would he or she be who didn't find it hard to put down, once picked up . . . The really clever part is the tone, which is never facetious, always respectful to the subject matter, even when there is a faintly detectable Jeevesian smile to the prose. It is hard not to say: "Oh, just one more, then." * Guardian *
Amusingly and energetically told...his best. Pollard has the QI knack of knowing what's funny or interesting * Spectator *
The parts of our past they didn't teach in school * Express *
'Ideal for history buffs and fact lovers' * Scottish Sunday Post *
Gems you won't have heard about at school * Daily Mail Scotland *
I sometimes wish that my school history lessons had given a bit less time to important things such as the repeal of the Corn Laws and a bit more to the sort of by-the-way history told here . . . amusing * Sunday Telegraph *
