“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. Harmon has put together a quirky, fun, wide-ranging guide to nearly 500 different books, films, podcasts, songs, television episodes, video games and more, sorting them into kooky top 10 lists. . . .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

“This book is terrific fun just for browsing purposes. But as a source of potential teaching / discussion / writing ideas, it’s downright invaluable.” —Peter Gutierrez, “Connect the Pop,” School Library Journal blog
