This book is horrible. The chart positions listed are not actual teu Billboard year end charts. In additoin, there are several numerical mistakes through the book. The index is completely off and is missing several componets that are in the book. I have to keep a separate notepad in the book to make not of missing information. It was put together in a very sloppy manner. Huge disappointment. If you are interested in this type of information, you are better off looking for books by Joel Whitburn.
