Search high and low .... but apart from the promise in the title there is not one single iota of DISINFORMATION ! Some of the lists are interesting but if you seek information about facts that are widely believed but untrue, you must seek elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange things indeed! 9 Jun. 2005
By therosen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Russ Hicks provides an anarchistic (or at least non-maintsteam) view of the world in his alternative media Book of Lists.

Some of it is current, including commentary on the war in Iraq. From List 31, 23 Quotes Regarding the 2003 Invasion of Iraq: "Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction." - Vice President Dick Cheney, August 26, 2002

Some of it is a spin on religeon. List 64 includes 87+ People Mormons have Baptized by Proxy, including Buddha, Albert Einstein and Joan of Arc.

Some of it is just strange, such as List 42, 9 Visitors Who Died at Disneyland. This includes examples like Mark Maples, the first, death, who was thrown from the Bobsled ride after unlocking the seat belt and standing up.

A lot of this leaves you scratching your head. The book is certainly a subversive assault on the mainstraim. No doubt it's not 100% true, but it's certainly worth the "Ahas", "Could it bes" and "No ways!" that it will generate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary to the Last Drop 3 Jun. 2004
By Robert Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well I'm about half way through the book now, and though I must say that I can't put it down, it has been giving me some nightmares. I'm not claiming to believe that the things Russ writes about are true, but they certainly are disturbing. I recommend this book to anyone interested in... "Disinformation".

3.0 out of 5 stars Eye-catching, previously neglected information 6 Sept. 2006
By CV Rick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Russ Kick has a knack for eye-catching, previously neglected information. There are 36 Corporations That Ripped of the U.S. Government (led by HCA, ripping off America's Health Care System in spectacular fashion). Another: 36 Botched Executions, complete with gory details. How about: 19 Suicide Notes (Male, 74. "I married the wrong nag-nag-nag and I lost my life.") One of my favorites: The 9 US Companies Allowed to Manufacture Illegal Drugs (The Polaroid Corporation makes a powerful psychedelic amphetamine - who knew?)

The book is great taken a few lists at a time over a month or two.

4.0 out of 5 stars Facts And Information From Outside The Mainstream 16 May 2007
By Chris Luallen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Russ Kick uses a format similar to the one Irving Wallace and family first popularized with the original "Book Of Lists" in the 1970's (which I was a big fan of as a kid). But Kick's book is different in that it offers lists from a countercultural perspective. Some examples are "82 Brands of Heroin," "7 CIA Plots to Kill Castro," and "23 Strange Genres of Porn Movie." If you have an interest in such topics than this book will probably be a fun and informative read. But those seeking more conventional knowledge should probably look elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not many details 20 Jun. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Interesting but like the title says it's a book of lists so don't expect detailed info of every listing. It will take personal research to get more info.
