The 24 Days of Gift Suggestions: Day 3

The 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived is an amusing, sometimes surprising little book. Shylock, Ebenezer Scrooge, Hester Prynne, Sam Spade - all good, solid choices for the list. I was surprised by the person the authors ranked #1, but their reasons for doing so were convincing. (I might also argue that the Loch Ness Monster, King Kong, Godzilla, and Frankenstein's creature aren't really people, but their inclusion does make the list even more fun.)
