QI: The Second Book of General Ignorance by John Lloyd and John Mitchinson is the sequel to the phenomenal international bestseller QI: The Book of General Ignorance, with, as ever, a foreword by Stephen Fry.
John Lloyd has a broadcasting background. As a radio producer he
devised The News Quiz and To the Manor Born before moving to
television to start Not the Nine O'Clock News, Spitting Image, and
Blackadder. If pressed, he'd concur with Heraclitus: 'abundance of
knowledge does not teach men to be wise.'
John Mitchinson is from the world of books. The original Marketing Director of Waterstone's, he became Managing Director of Cassell, where he published The Beatles, Michael Palin and Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.
