Can you name five military leaders who were transgendered? Twelve cases of involuntary human experimentation by the U.S. government? How about the four porn novels written by famous authors, 11 books left out of the Bible and over 50 side effects of NutraSweet that have been reported to the FDA? In 1977, David Wallechinsky, Irving Wallace and Amy Wallace published The Book of Lists, causing an immediate sensation. Not only did it lead to three direct sequels (in 1980, 1983 and 1993), it also created a new genre. Soon, shelves were lined with The First Original Unexpurgated Authentic Canadian Book of Lists (1978), The Book of Sports Lists (1979) and Meredith’s Book of Bible Lists (1980), among many others. Using this popular, enduring format, Russ Kick’s Disinformation Book of Lists delves into the murkier aspects of politics, current events, business, history, science, art and literature, sex, drugs, death and more. Despite such unusual subject matter, this book presents hard, substantiated facts with full references. Among the lists presented: Innocent People Freed from Prison Members of the Skull & Bones Secret Society at Yale Drugs Pulled Off the Market After They Killed Too Many People Legal Substances that Will Get You High Scenes that Were Cut from Movies Raunchy Songs that Were Never Released Military Officers, Government Officials, Astronauts, and Airline Personnel Who Say UFOs Are Real Words and Phrases No Longer Allowed in Textbooks

A Book Of Magical Lists: Manifest Your Desires Through Words Of PowerThe Hidden Book Of Lists is based upon a very old mysterious book now lost to time. The only remnant that is left is this reproduction (from memory) of the practicing Qabalist and 19th-century Magician "Frater Gethom". The work is based upon the magical use of secret lists, describing the characteristics of one's desires. Choose a name for your list carefully - during the correct phase of the Moon, lock it away secretly in some hidden place and bring it into reality! Believing in magic or not, the book is a cool-looking addition to any bookshelf, with a weathered, faux-vintage cover design! Guaranteed to catch attention, the book itself has a strange aura about it. It has an odd evocation that if read aloud grants "great power" over the Hidden Lists (the actual language and meaning is lost). Enjoy this strange and mysterious little book, and may all your wishes come true!
