Editorial Reviews

We all love lists, but you will never love them more than they are presented in Listomania, the latest giant step for humankind by same team that brought us Show Me How and More Show Me How. With a wild sense of wonder (Where else would you find a tally of 15 movies featuring giant rabbits?) and eye-catching infographics, this imaginative crew totes up roll-calls of "tiny terrors" (petite world leaders), famous people who were adopted, the 10 top cheese eating countries, prehistoric creatures named for famous people or cool things, and eight dastardly Ponzi schemes (starring a certain Mr. Madoff.) If this compilation could be more fun, we don't know how.
