Editorial Reviews

Asbury Park Press
Outrageous, entertaining fun.
VOYA
There are at least six top reasons for purchasing this entertaining and browseable book. First, your library reference books budget includes a little extra this year for something not entirely necessary but definitely fun. Second, DK's shiny cover and glossy format rival the millennium edition of the Guinness Book of World Records for packaging coolness with its gorgeously reproduced photographs and impeccable design. Third, reading aloud from any page in Ash's book of lists would be an effective advertising tool for it during a junior high booktalk. Fourth, the content of the lists themselves is widely varied, including inventories of the "Youngest Female Singers to Have a Number One Single in the U.S." and "Top 10 Kevin Spacey Movies." Fifth, "Pop-Up Video"-esque squares along the lower margin of select pages offer still more trivial information about the subjects listed on the page. And sixth, Readers can check the box on page 223, "World Tourism," to discover the home of the first roller coaster. The aforementioned impeccable design will draw browsers irresistibly and possibly even encourage reluctant researchers. One can consider Ash's Top 10 to be a cram sheet and guarantor of success in the Teen Trivial Pursuit challenge of your library. To ensure a librarian win, do not display book until after the trivia game.
