YA-Compiling information from such varied sources as CD-Roms, the Internet, obscure reference books, government publications, and research organizations, this annual top-10 list provides a fascinating look at today's culture. Though some entries, such as longest river or highest mountain, remain the same, others change yearly, such as best-selling books, box-office cinema, play hits, or top-selling songs. Beginning with human achievements in the 20th century, the lists go on to cite the most highly populated countries in the world in 1900, 1950, and 1990. Most expensive paintings during the decades range from Picasso and Renoir to van Gogh. Ash invites readers to suggest lists and send them to his e-mail address. The illustrations and short essays provide explanations as well as a rationale for inclusion and make this more than a book of lists.-Pam Spencer, Chapel Square Media Center, Fairfax County, VA
