On the Tip of My Tongue will take you from the natural world to notorious ships and novelty records, from the arts to advertising slogans and airport codes, from science and sport to scandals and space shuttles, from historical events to Hogwarts and Hitchcock and from popular culture to platonic solids and poker hands.

It's a quiz book with a difference. As well as attempting to answer thousands of brain-twisting questions, you'll be asked to recall as many items as you can from a list, and to solve the hidden links between groups of questions. While you're struggling to find the right responses, you'll also be reading anecdotes, comments and curious facts. It can be played with family, friends, enemies--or on your own. But however you want to play it, you're sure to suffer the hopeless frustration of finding the next answer is . . . On the Tip of My Tongue.
