“The 2009-2014 World Outlook for 60-Milligram Containers of Fromage Frais”

That is this year's winner. Other choices:

The work beat stiff competition from the four actual books on the shortlist: “Curbside Consultation of the Colon,” “The Large Sieve and Its Applications,” “Strip and Knit With Style” and “Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring.”
Previous winners:

Past winners include “Versailles: The View From Sweden,” “Weeds in a Changing World” and “Reusing Old Graves.”
Books that have made the shortlist but inexplicably failed to win include “A Pictorial Book of Tongue Coatings,” “Sex After Death,” “Waterproofing Your Child” and “Cheese Problems Solved” — which, its publisher says, provides “responses to more than 200 of the most commonly asked questions about cheese,” with special emphasis on mozzarella, blue cheese and cheddar.
