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

Super Pop offers a maximum-pleasure, minimum-effort way to become smarter, happier, and a little bit more likely to survive a shark attack. This hilarious and wide-ranging guide sorts nearly 500 different bestsellers, blockbusters, and underappreciated gems into quirky top ten lists, like “How to Outwit Death: Essential Survival Tales,” and “Wax on: Wise Old Men Who Can Show You the Way.” 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!

Daniel Harmon is the editorial director at Zest Books, an award-winning publisher of nonfiction books teens and young adults based in San Francisco, and distributed by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Among his roles at Zest, Daniel edits and acquires books in the new “True Stories” line of memoirs and first-person accounts. Daniel is also a longtime editor of pop culture projects for an assortment of publishers. A former staff writer at Brokelyn.com, he is the author of “Oh, Hi Humanity,” an essay in the Cult Pop Culture anthology. His first book as an author, Super Pop! Pop Culture Top Ten Lists to Help You Win at Trivia, Survive in the Wild, and Make It Through the Holidays is being released in June 2013.

Super Pop is the Holy Grail for ALL your social and anti-social needs! Daniel Harmon’s book is smarter than the average bear, funnier than the average LOLcatm 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 Times bestselling author of Buffy: The Making of a Slayer, Teen Wolf: On Fire

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.” –Ethan Alter, Television without Pity, film critic
