Amazon.com Review

From pictures of dressed-up dogs to Bond Girls, and extreme sports to extreme weather, Take Me to Your Leader is packed with information that is curious, compelling, intriguing, and indispensable. With its innovative visual take on trivia, pop culture, and strange-but-true tales, this is an exciting, original, and hilarious look at humans and the world they've created.

Ian Harrison is a part-time inventor and the author of numerous books on a variety of subjects ranging from ancient battlefields to modern inventions. His books have been translated into numerous languages, including Dutch, French, Norwegian, South Korean, Greek, Italian, Bulgarian, Afrikaans, and Estonian. The Book of Firsts, which was published in hardback in 2003, has sold over 100,000 copies and been translated into 14 languages.

From Publishers Weekly

From recipes for the world's biggest sushi roll to a survey of man-made islands to the surprising mating habits of animals around the world, author and "part-time inventor" Harrison (The Book of Firsts) doesn't leave anything out of this illustrated roundup of the strange and unlikely. Filled with all kinds of photos, charts, diagrams and illustrations, the volume contains entries on a number of broad subjects: food and drink, customs and etiquette, sports and leisure, myths and legends, technology and communication. The book's structure is itself amusingly bizarre: none of its seven chapters are named, or even themed, but rather used as a placeholder for a list of trivia on that chapter's number (which jump from three to seven to nine to 12). Though it's not entirely appropriate for the whole family-parents may want to keep young children away from sections on "90's Booty" and "Backhanders" (an index of volleyball behind-the-butt hand signals)-this colorful book makes up in presentation and scope what it lacks in restraint, and makes for great coffee table browsing. Color illus. throughout.

I was looking for something for my 15 year old nephew for Christmas. He loves Guinness Book of World Records and fun fact books. This was the hit of the morning! Everyone in my house, of ALL ages, couldn't keep their hands off this book. This one won't disappoint!

Absolutely hilarious! A must for any trivia buff and anyone else with an interest in the things that happen around us. This may sound funny, but it is the perfect book for the bathroom. Sit down, open to any page and be prepared to be entertained.
