2.0 out of 5 stars Too Focused on the UK, April 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Ultimate Pub Quiz (Paperback)
One of the problems with "Pub Quiz" books is that they consist of so many questions about "football", i.e., soccer, the BBC, and here even some questions about snooker.

American audiences will want to check out American Pub Trivia instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this book, April 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a nice fact / trivia book that I think is perfect as a "Bathroom Book". The information is interesting, accurate, and broken down into short vignettes that is great for reading when you only have 5 minutes at a time.

Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Much Content, April 27, 2014
It continues to boggle my mind that this cheap book with terrible reviews and only like 20 questions actually outsells the excellent book American Pub Trivia that has great reviews and tons of entertaining questions. Opt for the latter.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wong Answers, April 14, 2014
The reviewer above me sums it up: Many of the answers are wrong. That's just not acceptable.

The questions are not very interesting either. If you are willing to spend just a little bit more, you can get the excellent book American Pub Trivia that will entertain you and your family for hours.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh, April 14, 2014
Certainly, there are questions and answers here. But, neither the questions nor the answers are particularly interesting. Just dry and boring facts.

If you are looking for interesting trivia that touches on those feelings of nostalgia, and your, "Wait until you hear this one..." moments, I suggest American Pub Trivia instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite in the Mentall Floss Series...., March 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a number of books in the Mental Floss Series. This is, by far my favorite of the series. The book is broken down into categories and within each category, the information it shares are provided anecdotally. The format lends itself well for being digested in numerous short readings. So, it is a fantastic "bathroom book". Not a "trivia book", per se, but filled with lots of interesting information on a wide variety of topics. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Laughs, March 6, 2014
Succinct review: I enjoyed the original.I heard the Hangover II was terrible, so I skipped it. Then, I heard Hangover III redeemed the sequel. Unfortunately, this was false. I didn't laugh once. A complete waste of One Hour and 40 Minutes of my life. Skip this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Good., November 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Full disclosure, I am the author of American Pub Trivia. So, take this for what you will. I love the Ken Jennings Trivia Almanac, but this "Trivia Pursuit Trivia", seems to be just making money for the Hasbro "Trivial Pursuit brand". There isn't anything interesting or unique about the questions, and as some others have noted, some questions are repeated. It seems to have been thrown together hastily without any trivia writers or editorial oversight. I really wanted to like this book, I still own it. But, it isn't that great..... At the same time, if you are a real trivia person, and can snag a copy of less than $6, the book may actually hold its value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Single Best Trivia Book on The Market, November 18, 2013
Hands down this is the best trivia book that I have ever read. Ken always ask clever questions that aren't too hard and also not too easy. Plus, in terms of sheer volume, with nearly 9,000 high quality questions in a variety of formats. Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Great Volume, October 19, 2013
I'm only writing this because it is currently rated three stars. Completely ridiculous. This is a fantastic volume of trivia answers. I am the author of American Pub Trivia), so I know good trivia books when I see them. If you are looking for trivia questions and answers, by all means, you should buy my book. But, *this book*, with a foreward by *Ken Jennings* (who also know his stuff) is endlessly entertaining, always giving new ideas, new information, and is one of the best 'bathroom books' you will ever find. This is carefully researched by a dedicated trivia aficionado. Along with Ken Jennings "Trivia Almanac", Newman's book is one of the best trivia books on the market.
