Or, with Who Wins?, pit them head-to-head in a Ping-Pong match, hot dog eating contest, or a pie bake-off and actually understand firsthand the strengths and weaknesses, the triumphs and losses of the people who have shaped out world. Interactive, die-cut, and fully illustrated, Who Wins? turns history into a compelling game. With mix-and-match die-cut pages (so each make-your-own matchup includes two historical figures and one wild challenge), readers can flip any of the three panels and match 100 historical figures in 50 competitive head-to-head categories, from mini golf to climbing Mount Everest. Each character is given a short bio and ranked in six categories-bravery, leadership, artistry, wealth, wisdom, and fitness. Let's say Charles Dickens challenges Mother Theresa to a lightsaber duel-will his superior artistry overcome her advantage in bravery and leadership? Or who wins karaoke-Nelson Mandela or Jane Austen? They both certainly have a way with words, but Mandela's over-the-top courage might take the day. Actually there are no right answers-the reader decides and must justify the answer based on the rankings as well as facts from short biographies opposite each character's page. History has never been so much fun"--"@en ;
