Overview

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 over 7,000 intriguing facts and stats on history, science, sports, music, movies, nature, people, and places—from the stars of stage and screen who shone the brightest to the terrestrial animals that weigh the most.

Some of the lists are entirely new, some are updated with the latest news, and all appear on attractively illustrated spreads. “First” and “Fast” fact boxes pinpoint the pioneers and the most recent achievers in various endeavors. It’s entertaining and educational!

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\
