Description

It 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 the editors 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 thoroughly up-to-date edition. Published all over the world, and containing lists written specially for each country, this edition has something for everyone. Has inspired a series of spin-offs which will cover famous cities around the world - the first in the series, the London Book of Lists, will appear in November.

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