You probably know them best from March’s electrifying University Challenge semi-final, which saw two of the series’ most memorable contestants, dapper Bobby Seagull and fan favourite Eric Monkman, go head-to-head in a Cambridge derby between Emmanuel and Wolfson colleges. In this new quiz book, however, Monkman and Seagull are on the same team – and their opponent is you. Containing over 400 questions, this book will see the devilish wits of TV’s brainiest boffins put to the page for the first time, with tricks and tests to taunt even the smuggest sofa-shouter. From puzzles to pop quizzes on everything from particle physics to philharmonics, it’s sure to perplex even Paxman.

Eric Monkman is from Oakville, Ontario, and did his Master’s in Economics at Wolfson College, Cambridge.So much was he adored on the show that he spawned the
hashtag Monkmania, and T-shirts with his face on them.

Bobby Seagull was born in East Ham and has a Master’s in Education specialising in Maths from Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He has worked as a financial markets trader at Lehman Brothers, and qualified as a chartered accountant at PwC, before co-founding OxFizz, an educational social enterprise.

The pair are good friends, and became famous after appearing on Series 46 of BBC Two’s University Challenge.
