Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover An eclectic, surprising, and utterly entertaining compendium, The Order of Things compiles a very astonishing diversity of information--the natural, the social, the mathematical, the mystical--into hundreds of charts, systems, lists, and hierarchies. From Barbara Ann Kipfer, who mastered the art of the list with her bestselling 14,000 Things to Be Happy About , this is a book for browsing, for research, and for the sheer pleasure of learning new things.
