Description

Although most people have a sincere desire to improve themselves - to make themselves smarter, happier, and more interesting - people are also pretty lazy, and really just want to sit on the couch and watch a movie. But those two impulses aren't necessarily mutually exclusive: After all, songs can also motivate us, and movies can teach us about other cultures, and it's hard to read anything without getting something out of it. Super-Pop organizes pop culture's greatest hits - including bestselling books, blockbusting movies, and platinum albums-into hilarious top ten lists, and provides quick-hitting commentary on all of the nearly 500 entries. In sum, Super-Pop offers a maximum-pleasure, minimum-effort way to become better at trivia, more interesting at a party, and, if it really comes down to it, a little bit more likely to kill a shark with pliers-if one should ever jump onto your raft and try to eat you. Lists include: Outwit death: Ten essential lessons in survival; Wax on: Ten movies that will show you the way (wise old man included); Drop the facade: Ten songs guaranteed to melt your frozen heart; and, The Easter special: Ten best works of art featuring at least one bunny.
