Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This popular annual—Ash's 20th Top 10 of Everything book—is an entertaining, full-color collection of top ten lists covering an array of topics and disciplines, including, among many others, the universe, music and entertainment, sports, nature, history, and cultures. As with prior editions, some topics recur, some are updated with new information, and some are entirely new, lending freshness to this latest incarnation. Sources are cited right along with the lists, and when lists are relative, Ash says so (as with the list of most and least corrupt countries). Other useful features include a handy index, a short guide to web sites for further reading, and "First" and "Fast" fact boxes scattered throughout that identify the most recent achievers in various fields. BOTTOM LINE With over 7000 facts cited in an easy-to-understand, easy-to-browse format, this affordable volume is suitable for circulating as well as reference collections in public libraries of all sizes. High school libraries may consider as well.—Katherine Mossman, Everett P.L., WA\
