Welcome to the Who's Bigger Blog!

I'd like to welcome you to the Who's Bigger blog, dedicated to making the world a Bigger place. It is part of our effort to make available all the analysis underlying our book Who's Bigger: Where Historical Figures Really Rank on our website,

Our goal here is to summarize all things happening in the Who's Bigger universe: milestones concerning out book, updates to our website, and new discoveries we make that would otherwise have to wait for a next book (is anyone up for Who's Even Bigger? :-)).

Our publisher, Cambridge University Press, is currently copyediting our manuscript.  They tell us that things are on schedule to publish the book in October 2013.   Last week, I attended a meeting of the Cambridge sales representatives, who promise to try to move the thing.   You can help them: the book will make a wonderful Christmas gift to all those you love.  The website is rapidly getting into shape.  Indeed we encourage you to check out your favorite historical figures, like Barack Obama
