QI: Advanced Banter

John Lloyd and John Mitchinson


Have you ever wondered why most books of quotations are stuffed full of rather pedestrian quotes by people you’ve never heard of?

It’s a shame because a really good quotation book - one which gathered the truest and funniest insights of the best minds, and organised them into more than 400 subjects, from ambition to worry (or from artichokes to windows) - a book which offered you a useful take on almost every situation life throws at you (from the death of your child’s hamster to the unified theory of everything), a sourcebook of wise one-loners, of knock-out jokes, of drole asides and heartfelt statements of truth and beauty, a practical handbook of interestingness, well, that would be worth having. And, guess what? Those thoughtful gentlemen at QI have come up with one.
