As of September 13th, 2022, we have 5,948 published lists on the website (so around 5,800 authors, as some authors have done multiple lists for different books).
I am so thankful for all the authors who have trusted me and given me some of their valuable time to contribute to this project, especially when some weird guy named Ben is emailing them out of the blue with nothing but a mockup image with no website yet.
Here are a few authors that you might know:
- Steven Pinker on the best books on rationality.
- Denise Kiernan on the best books on or by maverick women.
- Brit Bennett on the best novels about the complexities of being Black in America.
- Robert D. Kaplan on the best books on the Cold War.
- Margalit Fox on the best true stories that read like police procedurals.
- Sara Wheeler on the best travel books on Russia
- Martin Walker on the best books on the wine, food, and history of Perigord, France.
- Keith Lowe on the best books on the immediate aftermath of World War 2.
- And so many more 😊!
