The Great Canadian Book of Lists
Who were Canada’s most romantic couples? What were the country’s greatest disasters in the past 100 years and its ten best beers? Who were its most distinguished women? What were its most controversial works of art? And who were Canada’s greatest heroes, best athletes, and most despised murderers?
The Great Canadian Book of Lists chronicles a century of achievements, trends, important and influential people, and fascinating events that have shaped this country as it begins the 21st century. The best, worst, biggest, smallest, sexiest, and most significant are all here.
This best-selling book is not merely a shopping list of items about Canada. It’s rich with details to support why certain people and events made it onto nearly 200 lists. Statistical snapshots sprinkled through the book also provide a glimpse of societal trends which show how much Canada has changed. Experts and celebrities from the worlds of science, sports, literature, entertainment, and politics also provide their favourite lists exclusively for The Great Canadian Book of Lists.
In a book that has started as many arguments as it has settled, you’ll read about innovations and flops, successes and failures, comebacks and breakthroughs, record setters and trend setters. The Great Canadian Book of Lists was on the Globe and Mail’s bestseller list for five weeks in late 1999; The Ottawa Citizen says it’s "what some may call a quintessential book of lists.''
