The Wyrdest Link by David Langford is the second official Discworld quizbook, based on the well-known comic fantasy series by Terry Pratchett.

This book divides the questions into guilds. For example, if it is a question about a joke it may be categorised as in the Fools' Guild.

In 2006 a second edition of the book was released, updated with more questions.

Now The Wyrdest Link returns with hundreds more Discworld posers that will test your funny bone to the most hellish limits of endurance. Questions in the merciless tradition of the Star Chamber, the Spanish Inquisition, and Anne Robinson. And come to think of it, is it a good or bad thing to be...
