Totally Pointless!

This book is an offshoot from the popular teatime quiz show, Pointless. It is written b y the co-hosts, Alexander Armstrong & Richard Osman.

The book contains 100 items which the duo think are pointless, such as chip forks or cushions on beds. The book is full of their musings upon many pointless things in the world as well as quiz type sections.

Obviously this book is not to be taken seriously. It is light-hearted & amusing. Though nothing that instigated outright laughter, more the odd snigger or two. I have to say that I didn't always agree that their topp 100 were pointless but it did make for interesting reading.

This is one of those books that you want to dip in & out of rather than sit down & read properly. It is absolutely ideal for leaving by the phone to dip into when some call sentre puts you on hold & plays canned music at you.
