9781841955537: The Book of Lists: The Original Compendium of Useless Information

The first and best compendium of facts weirder than fiction, of intriguing information and must-talk-about trivia has spawned many imitators - but none as addictive or successful. For nearly three decades David Wallechinsky and Amy Wallace have been researching curious facts, unusual statistics and the incredible stories behind them. Now the most entertaining and informative of these have been brought together in a long-awaited, thoroughly up-to-date new edition. Containing full explanations of the facts behind each list - The Book of Lists - much more than just a book of lists.

About the Author:

David Wallechinsky and Amy Wallace created the first Book of Lists, published in 1977, with their father, Irving Wallace, and collaborated on three subsequent editions.

Review:

"Packed with more fascinating, trivial, vital and perverse non sequiturs than you can shake an encyclopaedia at." The New York Times Book Review; "A lot of fun." Wall Street Journal"
