The long-standing Number Crunch newspaper column in The Age and Sydney Morning Herald is a weekly bite of diverse, but always fascinating, stats and facts. This compendium is the second in a series of books that bring together the very best of the facts, feats and stats discovered by author John Croucher over many years of compiling the column. It includes a fresh new suite of cartoons by Roger Harvey. 637 Gorillas refers to the largest number of people running in gorilla suits in one race. Bananas if you ask us.
