Your Starter For Ben
Ebook: £1.99 [link]

Your Starter For Ben is a quiz-master's dream. Hundreds and hundreds of quirky but fun general knowledge questions for all the family, perfect to fill the awkward silences during that Christmas dinner lull, a particularly boring bit in a film or awaiting sentencing. And it fits right in your pocket too!

Although all the answers are completely true (except for the false ones in the True or False rounds), there's a sense of humour and nonsense throughout the book that represents the finest real life quiz nights in the UK and beyond.

I'll see you at the bar...
