Synopsis

__________

`My favourite geeks. Hilarious. Sideways. Brilliant.' Tim Minchin



In a year dominated by Russian collusion and Brexit confusion, The Book of the Year returns with another dose of barely believable yet wholly unimpeachable facts and stories from the past twelve months.



Every week for the past four years, Dan, James, Anna and Andy - the creators of the award-winning, chart-topping comedy podcast No Such Thing As A Fish - have wowed each other and millions of their listeners with the most astonishing trivia they have learned over the previous seven days. Now, once again, they have put down the microphones, picked up their pencils, and transformed a year's worth of weird and wonderful happenings into one uplifting book that you won't be able to put down.



Discover how Peruvian mummies affected the World Cup, and why Love Island contestants are experts in game theory - as well as hundreds of stories that may have passed you by entirely, including the news that:



* NASA sent a man with a fear of heights to the International Space Station.

* An ice hotel in Canada caught fire.

* Mark Zuckerberg's private data was compromised while he was talking to Congress about compromised data.



From Kim Jong Un's personal potty to Jeremy Corbyn's valuable vegetables, The Book of the Year 2018 is an eye-opening tour of yet another incredible year you didn't know you'd lived through.

No Such Thing As A Fish is a team of researchers who work on the BBC TV show QI. Each week they gather together in their Covent Garden office and record a podcast discussing the most interesting facts they've discovered over the previous seven days. In the three years since it launched, the show has attracted 1.4 million weekly listeners, won multiple awards, been transformed into the spin-off topical BBC2 TV series No Such Thing As The News, performed a sell-out UK tour, and been named one of iTunes' top 10 most downloaded podcasts of 2016. The team is made up of James Harkin, Andrew Hunter Murray, Anna Ptaszynski and Dan Schreiber. James is the head writer on QI, with ten series and five bestselling books under his belt. He has also appeared on TV quiz shows Fifteen to One and Only Connect, reaching the semi-finals in the latter and embarrassingly crashing out of the former. Andrew is a writer and comedian who also contributes to Private Eye magazine, is a member of the improv troupe Austentatious, and has staged his own one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe. He is known to fans (his mum) as `Lightning'. Anna is a QI scriptwriter who has previously worked in Scottish politics and Australian advertising, as well as selling fruit wine and hay-baling in the Highlands. She refuses to join Twitter. #GetAnnaOnTwitter Dan loves yetis.
