Blog Tour: Super Pop!

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 under appreciated 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!
As David Letterman demonstrates on the Late Show, top ten lists are really funny. And we know lists are a great way to get organized, get things done, and streamline life’s many tasks. But now, pop culture expert Daniel Harmon takes a totally new approach to list making in his new book Super Pop! and organizes 500 movies, songs, video games, and books into top ten lists that not only have the power to entertain, but also to help create a new and better you!

“This book of annotated lists reads like an effective study guide for your next trivia night…(the) content is actually far more substantial than first impressions would imply…This is a go-to resource for teens looking to bone up on pop culture, sound interesting at a party, or craft the perfect playlist for a workout.” —Booklist
“For anyone who has ever felt the slightest bit deficient in their pop-culture expertise, here is the ultimate guide, guaranteed to fill any void….The bizarre choices will prompt many double takes and lots of laughter….A weird, witty, endlessly entertaining compendium for the budding pop-culture aficionado.” —Kirkus Reviews
Super Pop is as snappy as its title—a wonderful gateway to broadened horizons for current and future pop culture obsessives.” —Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Magazine, television critic
“Thanks to Super Pop, you’ll never be caught without a pop culture recommendation—or ten—to fit every social setting (and fill many weekday nights at home as well).” —Ethan Alter, Television Without Pity, film critic
Super Pop is the Holy Grail for ALL your social and antisocial needs. Daniel Harmon’s book is smarter than your average bear, funnier than your average LOLcat, and more useful than a dozen remote controls. In a top ten list of the top ten “top ten” books,Super Pop goes straight to number one.” —Nancy Holder, New York Timesbestselling author of Buffy: The Making of a Slayer

Daniel Harmon is the author of Super Pop! Pop Culture Top Ten Lists to Help You Win at Trivia, Survive in the Wild, and Make It Through the Holidays, a pop culture connoisseur, and editorial director of Zest Books.
