Can you name five military leaders who were -transgendered?

Twelve cases of involuntary human experimentation by the U.S. government?

How about the four porn novels written by famous authors, 11 books left out of the Bible and over 50 side effects of NutraSweet that have been reported to the FDA?

In 1977, David Wallechinsky, Irving Wallace and Amy Wallace published The Book of Lists, causing an immediate sensation. Not only did it lead to three direct sequels (in 1980, 1983 and 1993), it also created a new genre. Soon, shelves were lined with The First Original Unexpurgated Authentic Canadian Book of Lists (1978), The Book of Sports Lists (1979) and Meredith's Book of Bible Lists (1980), among many others. Using this popular, enduring format, Russ Kick's Disinformation Book of Lists delves into the murkier aspects of politics, current events, business, history, science, art and literature, sex, drugs, death and more. Despite such unusual subject matter, this book presents hard, substantiated facts with full references.

Among the lists presented:

Innocent People Freed from Prison
Members of the Skull & Bones Secret Society at Yale
Drugs Pulled Off the Market After They Killed Too Many People
Legal Substances that Will Get You High
Dead People Surrounding Bill Clinton
Scenes that Were Cut from Movies
Raunchy Songs that Were Never Released
Military Officers, Government Officials, Astronauts, and Airline Personnel Who Say UFOs Are Real
Words and Phrases No Longer Allowed in Textbooks
