Last week, I got my hands on a copy of  “Inventory”, the ‘ultimate guide of more than 100 pop-culture lists guaranteed to create national consternation and debate.’ The book comes to us from the fantastic A.V. Club branch of The Onion and, while I don’t know if the lists will spark national consternation and debate it is absolutely a fun book to read. Hell, if you (like me) tend to stuff your memory with arcane pop-culture references for no reason other than you never know when you might need to know enough to debate vital things like “which TV character defined the 80’s” (for the record i’d argue until I was blue in the face that Alex P. Keaton is the VERY DEFINITION of the 80’s…), then this book is about to be your new Bible.

Or at least it will be until the next “Book of Arcane Lists” is released.

Really though this is a very fun book and I highly recommend it. It’s a great book to just pick up and thumb through then put down and come back to whenever you feel the need. Not having a plot and character development to worry about makes that easy to achieve.

So, yeah, get this book.  I mean, come on, it’s affiliated with The Onion so you KNOW it’s gonna be good.

**Final Rating: 4.5 out of 5**
