Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

New edition of the quirky reference first published in 1977. It is irresistible (even to those who are list-aversive). Some examples: 11 men who have cried in public, seven famous people expelled from school, 9 recent cases of tv censorship, 11 prominent people who died while exercising, 11 foods and their filth levels, six ways cats talk with their tails, 19 innocent Americans who were almost executed, nine people misquoted by Ronald Reagan, 12 museums of limited appeal.
