Description

From the ever-curious mind that brought you the best-selling Do You Think You're Clever? comes a brand-new trip to the far reaches of the intellectual universe, courtesy of even more notoriously provocative Oxford and Cambridge University interview questions.

How would you poison someone without the police finding out (Medicine, Cambridge)? What makes a strong woman (Theology, Oxford)? Instead of politicians, why don't we let the managers of IKEA run the country? (Social and Political Sciences, Cambridge)? How do you organize a successful revolution (History, Oxford)?

Whether you're interested in going to Oxford or Cambridge or just want to give your brain a workout, join polymath John Farndon on another exhilarating journey through the twists and turns of thought, and explore just what it means to be genuinely clever--rather than just smart.
