Oddest Title of the Year Award

It may not be the Nobel, but the Oddest Book Title of the Year award does have its own cachet. This year’s prize, sponsored by The Bookseller magazine, goes to…The 2009-2014 World Outlook for 60-Milligram Containers of Fromage Frais, a statistical report by Philip M. Parker. The competition was fierce. Runners up included Curbside Consultation of the Colon, The Large Sieve and Its Applications, Strip and Knit With Style, and Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring. “This may turn out to be the highest award that report will ever win,” Parker said.
