Disinformation Book of Lists: Subversive Facts and Hidden Information in Rapid-Fire Format Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Can you name five military leaders who were transgendered?

Twelve cases of involuntary human experimentation by the U.S. government?

How about the four porn novels written by famous authors, 11 books left out of the Bible and over 50 side effects of NutraSweet that have been reported to the FDA?

In 1977, David Wallechinsky, Irving Wallace and Amy Wallace published The Book of Lists, causing an immediate sensation. Not only did it lead to three direct sequels (in 1980, 1983 and 1993), it also created a new genre. Soon, shelves were lined with The First Original Unexpurgated Authentic Canadian Book of Lists (1978), The Book of Sports Lists (1979) and Meredith's Book of Bible Lists (1980), among many others. Using this popular, enduring format, Russ Kick's Disinformation Book of Lists delves into the murkier aspects of politics, current events, business, history, science, art and literature, sex, drugs, death and more. Despite such unusual subject matter, this book presents hard, substantiated facts with full references.

Among the lists presented:

  • Innocent People Freed from Prison
  • Members of the Skull and Bones Secret Society at Yale
  • Drugs Pulled Off the
  • Market After They Killed Too Many People
  • Legal Substances that Will Get You High
  • Scenes that Were Cut from Movies
  • Raunchy Songs that Were Never Released
  • Military Officers, Government Officials, Astronauts, and Airline Personnel Who Say UFOs Are Real
  • Words and Phrases No Longer Allowed in Textbooks

Synopsis:

Suppressed facts and subversive info in highly readable list form, comprised of bite-size chunks.
