A revised, updated and even more Canadian edition of the classic bestseller.

In 1977, The Book of Lists , the first and best compendium of facts weirder than fiction, was published. Filled with intriguing information and must-talk-about trivia it has spawned many imitators--but none as satisfying or successful. In 2005, Ira Basen and Jane Farrow brought together the most entertaining and informative of these original lists and augmented them with homegrown material in the first Canadian edition. Now, more than a decade later, this refreshed and expanded edition gives us even more highly addictive lists, including

· Margaret Atwood's 10 Annoying Things to Say to Writers
· 6 Cases of People Killed by God
· Jesse Wente 's 8 Films You Should Watch to Prepare for the End of the World
· First Sexual Encounters of 17 Prominent Canadians
· Cathal Kelly' s 9 Most Compelling Players in Soccer History
· 10 People Who Died Laughing

Fun, revealing and full of facts you didn't know you needed to know, The Book of Lists will inspire the list-maker in every reader.
