Hunter Davies' Lists: An Intriguing Collection of Facts and Figures by Hunter Davies
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Behind every ritual of every day - waking from a dream, calling the dog in, going for a drink after work - there are figures listing the most common dreams, the most popular names for male and female dogs and the preferred afterwork activities of various people. In an all-new approach to the list format, Hunter Davies explores these quirky and compulsive 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, which postcards will have sold out at the Tate Gallery, what to pack if you're ever going to join the Women's Air Force, and what on earth the Twelve Days Of Christmas actually refer to - buy this book.
