    Review quote
    'A social barometer of genuine historical value.' The Times 'A record of historic reference, chronicling the past year's important events... punctuated with unpredictably diverting statistics.' Guardian 'Schott hits the spot.' Evening Standard 'The ultimate book of lists, brilliantly, if eccentrically, presented and edited. Never has trivia been more entertaining.' Daily Mirror
