6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jim Wiechmann on February 13, 2000
Format: Paperback
It is startling to turn from the simplistic questions found on recent television game shows to this collection of truly challenging and interesting questions. Mr. Hamel has accumulated a wide variety of questions and categorized them in the most ingenious ways. Although the difficulty of the questions reduces the joy of getting them correct, the connections Hamel makes between the questions and with other bits of trivia more than compensates.
