The Bookseller Diagram Prize For Oddest Title of the Year

Which Book Title Is the Oddest?

We shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but what about its title? That's exactly what publishing trade magazine The Bookseller has done since 1978, when it began awarding its annual prize for oddest book title.

This year's winner, a dentist and author of Managing a Dental Practice: The Genghis Khan Way, can hope for a spike in sales — but probably not patients. Last year's winning title, Crocheting Adventures With Hyperbolic Planes, saw a 1,500 percent spike in sales, despite its hyper-specific subject matter. Below you'll find past winners. Out of all of these titles, which do you think is the oddest?
