Good but not as great as older versions  Aug 31, 2008
It was a good read, fun and easy, however alot of the lists from earlier versions were missing. And the newer ones seemed to be select persons favorites. Buy the older version for better lists
The New Book of Lists  Dec 23, 2007
A welcome addition to my collection of "Lists" books. A plethora of little known information - that may, someday, come up in a conversation and make me look smart. Ha-Ha!
The New Book of Lists  Oct 7, 2007
I have been waiting for this, I had both the old ones from the late 70's and 80's, and loved them, they went with me everywhere, and you can never tire of reading them. My book of "useless facts" is what my husband calls it, I can crack him up, amaze him, and leave him thinking with some of those lists. A book any true reader knows about is the book of lists.
Book of Lists  Apr 2, 2007
I got this book as a gift for my sister-in-law. She is very quirky and outgoing, but it is hard to figure out what gifts she might like. We haven't given it to her yet as her birthday is in a month, but we flipped through and it seems like a great gift. It is a little more in depth than I thought it would be too - instead of lists like the top ten things to do in an elevator, and jokes like that, it includes actual facts and the reasons they are in the list - such as lucille ball's top 10 favorite tv shows. It spans everything from politics to pop culture and is almost three inches thick! wow!
A Listomaniacs Dream  Nov 3, 2006
Wallechinsky, Wallace and Wallace are THE listophiles supreme!

For more years than I care to remember the Book of Lists and it's sequels have been giving us information that's presented with panache' and just the right amount of humor.

Want to know about stupid criminals - It's in there.
Want to know odd facts about historical figures - It's in there!
Want a light, fun read to satisfy your need for trivia - Oh, it's in there!

This particular volume is a mix of many of the lists in the original Book of Lists, plus a few updates.

I cannot say more about this book other than it helped me to seek other sources and aided me in so many ways when I was in college.

I mean, where else can you find the Dog Hero of the Year and 16 Cases of People Killed by God?

The Wallaces/Wallechinsky's also got a number of famous people to write their spin on the "listomania" as well.

This was an eclectic group covering such things as Lucille Ball's favorite sitcomes to Raold Dahl's best books to take to a distant planet.

Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

Of course, it would be great if they would re-release the original Book of Lists volumes in some kind of tribute package, but you take what you can get.

Highly recommended.
