Top 10 of Everything 2009by Russell Ash
With annual sales of 200,000 copies, Top 10 of Everything is clearly the place people go to get the lowdown on what or who was the best, worst, richest, fiercest, deadliest, or simply biggest of practically anything. It features 600 lists on a diverse range of subjects, from blockbuster movies and music to stellar universities, from crime and punishment to popular drinks. Find out which stars of stage and screen shone the brightest and which terrestrial animals weigh the most. See which habitable buildings are the tallest and which bodies are the largest in the solar system. Check out stats on airlines, crops, natural disasters, and sports. Some of the lists are entirely new, some are updated with the latest news, and all appear on attractively illustrated spreads with excellent background information. “First” and “Fast” fact boxes pinpoint the pioneers and the most recent achievers in various endeavors. It’s entertaining and educational!

We purchased this book with our 9-year old in mind. He loves reading facts and numbers about things. Myself, my husband, and our son each loves reading and perusing this book. It is easy to read a little bit and then put it down if you want to take a break.
This book was chosen as a coffee table sort of book. It has been a lot of fun to read and discuss for entertainment. I have had many people borrow it because they can't seem to put it down--there is always one more fact they are looking for. The book is fun.
This is a must have book if you are interacting with adult learners. Great to use as an icebreaker or to re-energize a learning environment. Teaming up participants aids team building.
I found this book a great tool to learn various facts.
