What makes a good quiz question? What is the enduring fascination with the quiz format? Why do some people cheat at them? What impact does alcohol have on a pub quiz team's performance? Is there such a thing as useless information? And is winning a quiz a matter of memory or intelligence? "Inquizition" is a quizaholic's attempt to answer such questions as the author details the worst pub quiz ever, reveals his bid to break a world record, unveils the quizmaster's guide to survival and ventures into the history of TV quizzes. "Inquizition" is also a quiz book, with 1,000 general knowledge questions gathered over a lifetime of quizophilia, from astronomy to movies to zoology. Finally, "Inquizition" holds a miscellany of information, crucial for any attempt at winning a quiz or constructing your own - but you don't have to be a quiz buff to take pleasure from it.
