Good Job, Brain! Trivia, Quizzes and More Fun From the Popular Pub Quiz Podcast
By Karen Chu, Colin Felton, Chris Kohler and Dana Nelson
Mind-effing factoids and quirky commentary that give the traditional trivia book a fun reboot Anyone who’s ever gone to a bar trivia night has had their soul crushed by that one team that always wins. Its members spout off the most random and esoteric pieces of trivia as if they’re common knowledge. Now, those four people have written Good Job, Brain! Packed with over 100 mind-blowing stories, hilarious mnemonics, and tricky puzzles, this book is the ultimate nutrition for big brains. Fans of the podcast will love playing their favorite segments from the show. There’s Brad Pitt or Lasers, the quiz that asks which of two unrelated objects came first. Another game, William Fakespeare, has readers identify pop songs based on lyrics—which should be easy, except those lyrics have been translated into Shakespearean English. Good Job, Brain! also features tons of brand-new content not from the show, including puzzles that make sense only on paper, original poems to help remember popular trivia, and stories about flying tailors and aimlessly traveling ships full of garbage. This book is a must-have for any trivia lover.
