best book ever written

On 25 November 1998 Les Stewart from Mudjimba (Australia) after 16 years at the typewriter reached his goal of typing all numbers from one to one million - in words (not numbers) on his manual machine. Seven manual typewriters, 1000 ink ribbons, 19,890 pages, 16 years and seven months later, he finished with the lines:

nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and million.
