Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Who consumes more ice cream, the Americans or the Swiss? Which countries have the most Internet users? What was the most expensive movie ever made? This eighth annual edition of Ash's work answers such questions and provides facts and figures on a broad range of topics, from human achievement to the natural world. The new volume includes more U.S. lists than ever, packaged in the publisher's attractive signature format. As with prior editions, categories dealing with science or nature reflect little change, while annual entries update movie, TV, and music awards. Ash, who has compiled earlier editions of this book, draws his information from government and research organizations as well as field specialists. The result is unique in appearing annually and presenting only quantitative items, unlike David Wallechinsky's sporadic and more personal Book of Lists, and in presenting the top ten in each field, unlike the Guinness Book of Records. And if this volume is not enough, readers can visit the publisher's web site (www.dk.com) for additional weekly top-ten lists. A worthwhile purchase for public libraries, both for reference and circulating collections.Kelli Perkins, Herrick P.L., Holland, Mich.
School Library Journal
YAFun, addictive, and instructional too! Illustrations, creative headlines, and entertaining topics draw readers into this wealth of lists of both trivia and facts. Identifications of the world's longest word (1185 letters), the most expensive item of pop memorabilia sold at auction, and the largest human organs are easy using either the broad subject categories or the precise index. Although this volume has fewer pages than last year's, it has more lists summarizing the 20th century and more boxed inserts. The subject areas remain the same, but many of the details have been updated. A wonderful addition where previous use warrants.
