Super Pop! Pop Culture Top Ten Lists to Help You Win at Trivia, Survive in the Wild, and Make it Through the Holidays by Daniel E. HarmonAlthough 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.
Booklist For anyone who has ever felt the slightest bit deficient in their pop-culture expertise, here is the ultimate guide, guaranteed to fill any void .The bizarre choices will prompt many double takes and lots of laughter .A weird, witty, endlessly entertaining compendium for the budding pop-culture aficionado.
'go beyond the old standard and a few new staples.'
...Harmon envisions a world where his audience will take these recommendations, discover new things, and add to the cultural archive with their own lists and recommendations. In this way, everyone will have an investment in keeping artifacts of pop culture from 'slipping through the cracks,
. 'I did not intend these lists to be an endpoint,
, 'but rather a beginning.
