5 Reviews

With annual sales of 200,000 copies, Top 10 of Everything is clearly the place people go to get the lowdown on what or who was the best, worst, richest, fiercest, deadliest, or simply biggest of practically anything. It features over 7,000 intriguing facts and stats on history, science, sports, music, movies, nature, people, and places—from the stars of stage and screen who shone the brightest to the terrestrial animals that weigh the most.

Some of the lists are entirely new, some are updated with the latest news, and all appear on attractively illustrated spreads. “First” and “Fast” fact boxes pinpoint the pioneers and the most recent achievers in various endeavors. It’s entertaining and educational!

Review: Top 10 of Everything 2010: Discover More Than Just the No.1!

User Review  - TrumanCoyote - Goodreads

Everything? lol Well, enough fun anyway to make for some good browsing, and despite the usual complement of goofy arbitrariness and internal contradictions. Kudos btw to the art director, one Bernard Higton, whose constant inventiveness made this a good deal more than just wall-to-wall boxes. Read full review
