Description

Everyone loves a list. From the 'need to know' to the true-but-extraordinary, The Australian Book of Lists brings together a wide-ranging collection of facts and figures about Australia. In this essential home reference, Steve Barnett has compiled arcane, curious and hilarious listings which cover Australian culture, people, places, sport, the natural world and everything in between. Some of the listings you will discover include: the twenty most popular names for pets; the sixteen best lines from Australian movies; eight original inventions from down under; nine great sports scandals; the eleven best beaches - and the five most hazardous ones; six facts about blokes; four conspiracy theories that just won't go away. Part encyclopaedia, part cultural guidebook, The Australian Book of Lists is an amusing and insightful companion to life in Australia.show more
