Around here, we love us our lists. In fact, the only things we love more than lists, are lists of lists. As far as we're concerned, being without a list means being, well, totally listless.
That in mind, we thank you, oh internet, for reminding us of this deus ex machina of a reference book, The Book of Lists, by David Wallechinsky and Amy Wallace, available through Canongate, a great site for anyone looking to stay informed (list aficionados, literati, or otherwise).
An early candidate for our favorite list? The 18 Secret Armies of the CIA...joy.
