Overview

Now in its 11th year, The Top 10 of Everything 2000 celebrates the end of the 20th century and the start of the 21st by presenting more "top 10'' lists than ever—over 1,000 of them! The fastest cars, the youngest U.S. billionaires, the biggest movie hits and flops, the world's most frigid spots, the top pop stars of the '90s, the top ten most intelligent dog breeds...they're all here in one entertaining and informative volume. First, historical lists in a special millennium section highlight the milestones of the past 1,000 years across a broad range of subjects, then it's on to 121 thematic spreads in 10 categories, from The Universe & The Earth and The Human World to Culture & Learning, Music, Stage and Screen, and more. The lists encompass "all time'' top tens, such as the top ten music albums of all time, as well as decade-specific lists, and "first ten'' lists such as the first ten countries to issue postage stamps. Whatever your interest—serious, sentimental, or silly—they add up to an irresistible mix of facts and trivia. Colorful graphics, photos, and illustrations and challenging quiz questions make browsing even more fun! 8 1/2" x 10 1/2". Color and black-and-white photos and illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The ultimate book of lists that are oddly hypnotizing, in spite of being essentially useless except as entertainment. The lists cover a lot of trivia about pop culture, with some natural history, planetary, and political tidbits included. The book includes color photographs. Annotation c.
