A Moment of Wikipedia Glory!

Charles and I were surprised and flattered to discover that Who's Bigger has officially been granted its very own Wikipedia page, in English.  By repeating our computational analysis in the future, we will now be able to rigorously determine whether we are bigger than, say, the Bible.   OK, maybe this is somewhat aspirational, but as the first of my five books to earn its own Wikipedia page Who's Bigger already becomes my biggest book by default.

The coolest thing is that for eight hours starting 08:00, 21 January 2014 (UTC) our book held pride of place under Did you know? on the front page of Wikipedia!  Such placement matters.  Statistics show that our page has been accessed 7596 times over the past thirty days, exactly 5144 of which came on January 21.
