If you, like me, love ordering your life through lists - shopping lists, to-do lists, books-to-read lists - you'll love this fascinating collection of more than one hundred lists by notable men and women. These Lists of Note include a tenth-century Chinese shopping list; a list of JFK's possible assassins, scribbled by his secretary as she escorted his body back to Washington on Air Force One; Gene Autry's ten-item Cowboy Code; Walt Disney's list of possible names for Snow White's seven dwarves; Johnny Cash's daily to-do list (item #2: "Kiss June"); Martin Luther King, Jr.'s suggestions for integrating Montgomery buses; Edith Wharton's list of her favorite books; Satchel Paige's rules for the good life; even a tally of workmen's absences from ancient Egypt! Each entry includes a photograph of the original document, an English transcription, and a short informational paragraph, all of which combine to offer an insightful - and, at times, deeply personal - glimpse into the list writer's life. Place this absorbing volume on your coffee table and watch your family members and guests get lost in the treasure trove of trivia! (KG)
