5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly popular reading for teenage boys 18 Jan. 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was chosen as a Christmas present by my teenage son for his brother, also a teenager. It was surprisingly successful as he is not really much of a reader. Again and again the lists are read out, usually at mealtimes, for example tips for surviving in prison was read out and discussed the other day. This was triggered by a radio news item about a school boy being sent to jail. I'd strongly recommend this book, particularly for the sort of person who likes the Guinness Book of Records.

A book that you can easily pick up and put down at any point. Provides some very interesting facts and figures.
Worth a look if you're after something easy to read that's light hearted and not too much effort.

Interesting at first, but gets pretty tedious after about the 50th list of random stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy for any person who enjoys lists and trivia 27 Oct. 2009
By Blogball - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Any person who loves trivia and enjoys information in list form will love this book. The lists are written by author and editor Jamie Frater and several other list writers that are fans of the Listverse website. This makes for a very entertaining read because the style of writing is different from one list to another. I recommend this book highly to anyone that loves learning new facts and enjoys lists from every different category under the sun.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun and engaging book for trivia buffs 18 Nov. 2009
By R. C Sheehy - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very entertaining and interesting book chock full of a wide variety of top ten lists spread through a number of categories. I find it hard to say which part I found most interesting. I think it will depend on which areas you the reader find most interesting. I liked that I wasn't as interested in some lists as I was in others. That shows me that a wide variety of readers will find this book to be fun and engaging.

Read it because you want something light and fun to enjoy. That's what I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book based on a website that is actually worth buying! 17 April 2010
By L Hri - Published on
I normally shy away from books based on a website because they are usually just the website in book form and end up being about 130 pages of "not-worth-buying." Not true with this book! This is 706 pages of pure awesome (not sure why the description says 432 unless the layout is different, it is definitely the same book). This is much easier to bring into bed or the bathtub than a laptop and it's perfect for reading for when there's just enough time to be bored but not enough time to get into anything (I'm a grad student, have chunks of time between classes or waiting for people). The BEST thing about the book compared to the website (which I also love like my own child made it) is that if I only want to read a couple lists (or 50) and then start homework I might actually do it instead of getting distracted by the rest of the internet.

Besides being an awesome read that will make you smarter and help you win trivia games, it's a big heavy book that you could use to press flowers or kill spiders and, if carried in a backpack, could be used to defend against would-be attackers. Why haven't you bought it yet? Stop reading this and go click "add to cart"!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't keep people away!!! 8 April 2010
By Allen L. Lute - Published on
I purchased this book because I enjoy trivia and everyone who stops by my desk asks to borrow it. It is very interesting and I really enjoy the history I've learned that I never knew in this fashion. Definitely a keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars mesmerizing 6 Feb. 2010
By M. Weller - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my 13-year old son as a Christmas present. He couldn't put it down. When he was finished reading it, I picked it up and was fascinated as well. He has gone back to it several times, re-reading sections. Some of the facts and stories were a bit gross but all the stories were, at the least, interesting and a few were mind-blowing. If you like those Ripley's Believe It or Not books, you will enjoy this one too.
