When I got started with the InQUIZitive series, I had no idea if people would be interested in a trivia quiz book in this format. Today, after multiple wonderful reviews and numerous mails from readers, I am convinced people enjoy this style of quizzing.

My journey with this series started when I found most trivia quizzing books in the market were very dry. They were mainly about memorizing facts. And in some cases, the questions were so obscure that even after reading the answer, you were left scratching your head. To me, trivia quizzing is much more than just memorizing facts. Answering an interesting question is like putting together a puzzle. As you go through the question, your brain cells start ticking. After analyzing all the details you have a moment of absolute clarity, your brain says, "Aha!" and an answer crystallizes in front of you. Even if you are not able to answer a question, when you finally see the answer, you feel "Shucks! I should have guessed that."

In the InQUIZitive series, I have tried to make sure that the readers have many "Aha!" moments. Additionally, I have taken great efforts to present the details in such a way to make them extremely memorable.  Happy quizzing & may the force be with you!
  
REVIEW
This book, fourth in the Pub Quiz Books and Trivia series written by Sumit Dhar.  I haven't read the previous three but this one was very interesting.  They put that gray matter to work. The author must do a lot of research to find this trivia and make it into a n interesting quiz.  If you love trivia, you'll love these  books.  If you haven't done much on trivia, try these books and you'll get hooked right away. In the 1960's college students traded questions and answers about the culture they were growing up in.  This was known as a casual parlor game that was entitled "Trivia". The entire book has trivia questions and then in the following chapter, the answers.   Five questions in each chapter, total of 100 in all.  There is the event with an explanation, clues and then trying to come up with the answer.  You won;t always know the answers but if you work at it, it will come to you.  The author wrote a book that will keep your mind active and alert.  You will easily become hooked on the book.  You'll put it down for a while and soon you're picking it up again. This is a book you'll want to keep and go back and read and answer the questions again and again.  Some of the questions are rather difficult for having a family time.

I was given a complimentary copy of InQUIZitive (Volume IV) from the author Sumit Dhar for my view of the book.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
