Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Boasting over 200,000 copies sold each year, this slender annual offers 7000 fascinating statistics on nine subjects ranging from the broader universe to the minutiae of contemporary sports. Although absorbing, the data is frequently without citation and offers only a double-spread list of further readings and a one-page record of general source material, without specific bibliographic records. With the book's array of appealing superlatives, dazzling full-color images, and striking design, Ash (coauthor, Bizarre Books) has produced a fun, visually stunning book better suited to casual entertainment than to scholarly rigor.
