Super Pop!: Pop Culture Top Ten Lists to Help You Win at Trivia, Survive in the Wild, and Make It Through the Holidays by Daniel Harmon

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Super-Pop offers a maximum-pleasure, minimum-effort way to become smarter, happier, and more likely to survive your next family function (or a shark attack). This hilarious and wide-ranging guide sorts nearly 500 different bestsellers, blockbusters, and underappreciated gems into quirky top ten lists, like “Outwit Death: Essential Lessons in Survival,” and “Achieve Mindfulness: Movies That Will Show You the Way (With Wise Elders Now Included).”  So whether you’re looking for some motivational workout music, need help planning a July 4th double feature, or just want to pick up some knowledge without straining your brain, this book has you covered. With new insights on old classics and fresh ideas for jaded eyes, Super Pop makes sense of pop culture – and then puts pop culture back to work!

Goodreads Summary

Looking for a book to interest high school/middle grade students during the summer?  Super Pop! will both interest and capture their attention with ease.   This book contains list after list of informative facts, movies, books, albums, etc...of pop culture.  I love books like these because I feel as if I'm learning without trying.  You can skip between topics if one particularly interests you or doesn't interest you at all.  It's a book that you can take with you to the beach or on an airplane.  This book can also function well during a random trivia night-try it, my family loved it!

I really enjoyed some of the segments, but I didn't always agree with every one-of course, that's what made the book fun!  I shared this book with a few friends and found we all had varying opinions.  Overall, this is a fun book that is worth picking up.
