Behind every ritual of every day—waking up from a dream, calling in the dog, going for a drink after work—there are figures which detail the most common dreams, the most popular names for male and female dogs and the preferred after-work activities of various people. In an all-new approach to the list format, Hunter Davies explores these statistics and their meanings, dispensing knowledge on every topic from the top 10 breakfast cereals (and the amount every household eats each year) to the things people want to do before they die. If you want to know what doctors' slang really means, and what on earth the Twelve Days of Christmas actually refer to, Hunter Davies' Book of Lists is for you.
