Knowledgeable and playful ... An absolute delight -- Simon Humphreys * Mail on Sunday *
An entertaining new book on quizzing ... Connor has again succeeded in explaining the enduring popularity of a curious pastime. The Joy of Quiz offers an entertaining sideways social history that takes in debates over quizzing and public morals, government oversight, and - I've started so I'll finish - the strange things otherwise ordinary people will undergo to win a round of drinks -- John Gallagher * Guardian *
Alan Connor has the mind of an entertainer and the soul of a quizzer. I can't think of anyone better placed to lead readers through this weird, wonderful, competitive and dastardly trivial pursuit -- Victoria Coren Mitchell
