Al Gore, the Buffalo Bills and Susan Lucci became famous for being the runner up, but they bucked the trend as most of those who trail in second disappear into oblivion on the first train to Loserville. Now, finally, we have a book that celebrates the unsung qualities of those who made it to the penultimate rung of the ladder but never quite reached the top. In The First Book Of Seconds ($11) you will find out all about those little known second placers with entries to highlight their still worthy achievements. So who is the second highest hitter of homeruns? What is the world’s second most dangerous animal? The answers to these, and many more besides , are all here for you to devour.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
