Format: Paperback
In Book of Lists: Subversive Facts and Hidden Information in Rapid Fire Format, 'Russ, dubbed an information archeologist' by the press flaunts his digging knack even more, and offers more neglected factoids for us to ponder. I honestly think that this book is his best one so far. With contributions by Paul Krassner, Richard Metzger and others, the Book of Lists is both informative and challenging. In it you will discover everything from the clever ways that pornography spammers try to get into your skin via the subject line in e-mails, Lynn Cheney's, the vice president's squeeze, attempt at fictional erotica (which is probably true in her real life), to all of the botched executions in the US, the last meals of death row inmates to famous sexual threesomes (giving some titillating substance to the Hegelian thesis/antithesis/synthesis triad). While reading The Book of Lists I became more and more impressed with Kick's investigative tenacity and ever admirable quest to annihilate the consensual hallucination we all contribute to with our amnesia and unwillingness to face the truth or the facts for that matter. May Russ's dedication to bringing unpleasantness to light spark some collective transformation and cause people to do their own digging around, not only on the internet but at the local courthouse, even in their attics as well. . I do hope, someday soon, that Russ does some above ground investigative work into the chem trails conspiracy, weather modification and artificial intelligence technology. He may have to submit a FOIA request to almighty god for this to happen however. With the way things are going for him these days, he may very well receive a reply in the affirmative!

Well I'm about half way through the book now, and though I must say that I can't put it down, it has been giving me some nightmares. I'm not claiming to believe that the things Russ writes about are true, but they certainly are disturbing. I recommend this book to anyone interested in... "Disinformation".

Interesting but like the title says it's a book of lists so don't expect detailed info of every listing. It will take personal research to get more info.

Strange things indeed! June 9 2005
By therosen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Russ Hicks provides an anarchistic (or at least non-maintsteam) view of the world in his alternative media Book of Lists.

Some of it is current, including commentary on the war in Iraq. From List 31, 23 Quotes Regarding the 2003 Invasion of Iraq: "Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction." - Vice President Dick Cheney, August 26, 2002

Some of it is a spin on religeon. List 64 includes 87+ People Mormons have Baptized by Proxy, including Buddha, Albert Einstein and Joan of Arc.

Some of it is just strange, such as List 42, 9 Visitors Who Died at Disneyland. This includes examples like Mark Maples, the first, death, who was thrown from the Bobsled ride after unlocking the seat belt and standing up.

A lot of this leaves you scratching your head. The book is certainly a subversive assault on the mainstraim. No doubt it's not 100% true, but it's certainly worth the "Ahas", "Could it bes" and "No ways!" that it will generate.

Eye-catching, previously neglected information Sept. 6 2006
By CV Rick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Russ Kick has a knack for eye-catching, previously neglected information. There are 36 Corporations That Ripped of the U.S. Government (led by HCA, ripping off America's Health Care System in spectacular fashion). Another: 36 Botched Executions, complete with gory details. How about: 19 Suicide Notes (Male, 74. "I married the wrong nag-nag-nag and I lost my life.") One of my favorites: The 9 US Companies Allowed to Manufacture Illegal Drugs (The Polaroid Corporation makes a powerful psychedelic amphetamine - who knew?)

The book is great taken a few lists at a time over a month or two.

Facts And Information From Outside The Mainstream May 15 2007
By Chris Luallen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Russ Kick uses a format similar to the one Irving Wallace and family first popularized with the original "Book Of Lists" in the 1970's (which I was a big fan of as a kid). But Kick's book is different in that it offers lists from a countercultural perspective. Some examples are "82 Brands of Heroin," "7 CIA Plots to Kill Castro," and "23 Strange Genres of Porn Movie." If you have an interest in such topics than this book will probably be a fun and informative read. But those seeking more conventional knowledge should probably look elsewhere.
