The People's Almanac Presents the Book of Lists by Amy Wallace (Bantam Books 1985)(031.02). Now THIS is a trivia book! Before every website had scads of "top ten lists" of every subject under the sun, there was The Book of Lists. I read this thing cover to cover. I couldn't get enough! It's amazing what the author assembled here! I highly recommend this for fans of "Jeopardy"! My rating: 8/10, finished 1995.
