This is a quiz book for people with a memory like a sieve who
can't remember a fact for five minutes. It's the opposite of the
straight general knowledge quiz where you have to remember the date
of the Armada or the capital of Peru -one of the problems with
those quizzes is they are not much good for family entertainment,
especially those trivia ones that rely on an encyclopaedic
knowledge of Nineties pop music or the Hollywood years. Not much
chance for ten-year-olds to shine with questions of that sort.
Happily The Lateral Thinker's Quiz Book doesn't require
you to know many facts at all. It's a fun book that relies on quick
wits and, well, lateral thinking. That means using your imagination
to sort out those little trick questions and riddles that are the
stuff of this book. There are lots of brand new questions and some
old favourites too, 600 altogether in sets of ten for each round.
Try them out on the family. you might find that the kids often do
better than their parents - maybe they have livelier minds! Try
them out at work too - author David Williams has used some of these
question rounds in training situations and away days, especially
when the object of the day is to stimulate greater creativity and
One of the great things about this ebook format is that you are
always just one click away from the answers in each section. And
the more you groan at the answers they happier we will be. This is
not a book to be taken seriously, just to be enjoyed.
