Deep within the human psyche lurks the primal urge to compete. It can take many forms: sport, nuclear war, the pub quiz. Sport is universal, nuclear war threatens us all, but only Britain has a thriving quiz culture all of its own.

This book delves into the dark heart of British quiz culture - its origins, its practices, its background - and its unfortunate knitwear.
