The Giant Book of Trivia: 1000 Questions and Answers to Engage all Minds; picks up right where The Great Book of Trivia left off! Once again, we’ve brought together a host of fresh and intriguing questions that will test the limits of your knowledge across a huge range of subjects.
The book is divided into 4 parts:
Part 1 presents 50 challenging general knowledge quizzes.
Part 2 introduces the “specialist rounds” at three levels of difficulty: medium, challenging and fiendish. Here you’ll find questions on geography, history, sport, science and nature, literature, art and architecture, and movies and TV.
Part 3 brings a lighter touch with a selection of “bonus round” quizzes, where you’ll be asked to spot connections, identify years from a series of clues, unravel proverbs, and sort out lists of famous people, places and things.
Part 4 contains 20 “family fun” quizzes that will be especially enjoyable for younger minds. There are straightforward general knowledge questions, alongside rhyming and alphabet quizzes.

At Elsinore Books we pride ourselves on creating beautiful e-Books, and devote great attention to formatting, and ease of navigation. This book contains a cleanly-styled contents page that permits easy movement between quizzes. Each quiz occupies its own chapter, so you can move between quizzes by pressing a single button on your e-reader.
You can access the answers to each quiz by following the links at the top and bottom of the question page. On the answer pages you’ll find each question rewritten and followed by its answer in bold.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
