From the same team that brought you "Show Me How "and "More Show Me How" comes a whole new way of looking at the crazy facts that drive the world--and discovering that real life is not only stranger than fiction but more unexpected than anything you''ve ever dreamed of. Trivia fanatics and anyone fascinated by the new frontiers of visual information design--with books like "Everything Explained through Flowcharts," "Visual Miscellaneum," and the cartooning of Chris Ware--will be enthralled by the quirky, captivating graphics of "Listomania."
From the Publisher:

Organized into eight chapters, Listomania covers questions of human behavior, trivia facts about geography (past and present), etymology, mythology, ancient and recent history, as well as pop culture. Some of the lists included are:

  • 10 Tiny Terrors: a list of the ten most petite world leaders (yes, some were shorter than Napoleon!)
  • 43 Famous People Who Were Adopted (e.g. Steve Jobs, Debbie Harry, Mark Twain, Alexander the Great)
  • 15 Movies Featuring Giant Rabbits
  • 10 Top Cheese Eating Countries( note correspondence to the top ten happiest countries)
  • 8 Dastardly Ponzi Schemes
  • 38 Ancient Cities (That People Still Live In)
  • 28 Prehistoric Creatures Named for Famous People or Cool Things (e.g. Dracorex Hogwartsia, Attenborosaurus, and Psephorus Terrypratchetti)

Illustrated in full color with playful images, graphs, charts, captions, and photographs, this colorful book brings a new face to trivia and is sure to wow readers, surprise them, and make them laugh from cover to cover. Listomania functions as a practical information resource as well as a fun and quirky gift for readers of any age.
