There is nothing new about compiling lists; it has been going on since Moses descended from Mount Sinai with a list of the Ten Commandments. Irving Wallace, his son and daughter are devoted to the collection of other people's lists and have now gathered together an enormously entertaining assembly of amusing, instructive, illuminating or divertingly eclectic lists. Approximately 300 lists are divided for easy reference into 20 sections covering most aspects of the human condition. From them you can discover who are considered the 5 most hated persons in history - the 10 worst generals - Pele's 50 best soccer players of all time; 15 famous events that happened in a bathtub and 15 prehistoric things that are alive today; 7 famous men who were virgins and 23 of the busiest lovers in history; 11 places in which to spend a healthy winter and 8 cases of spontaneous combustion; Orson Welles's 12 best movies of all time and 10 famous snorers. It is safe to say there has never been a more seductive bedside book. Third impression of the First Edition. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 304 pages.
