Russell Ash's many works include popular reference books, humorous books, and countless articles for publications ranging from The Sunday Times and the Independent to Punch and Loaded. He is regularly interviewed about his work on radio and television around the world.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4 Up-Ash has hit on a winning formula. He has managed to create a volume as informative as an almanac and as appealing as the ever-popular Guinness World Record books. The layout is attractive and colorful photographs abound. Major headings covering such topics as "Life on Earth," "Commerce & Industry," "Culture & Learning," and "Stage & Screen" are packed with current statistics and facts. Historical information is provided in many of the "first" lists, e.g., "First Countries to Give Women the Vote." The section on transportation has several gruesome statistics including "The 10 Worst Motor Vehicle and Road Disasters." This book is sure to get lots of browsing attention and has much supplemental information for report writers. Libraries will want to update their earlier editions.
