Mitchell Symons was a principal writer for the early editions of Trivial Pursuit, has worked as a broadcaster and journalist for a variety of newspapers and magazines, and has written more than fifty bestselling books, including several for children. He has won the prestigious Blue Peter award for 'Best Book With Facts' for the past two years. Mitch is also a very keen and skilful poker player. He lives in Brighton with his wife and sons - including his son Jack, who co-authored The Book of Poker Calls. Jack Symons is a marketing consultant and serial entrepreneur.
