Along with his son, David Wallenchinsky, he also created reference books including "The People's Almanac," 1975, "The Book Of Lists," 1977 and "The People's Almanac II," 1978.
Irving had a long apprenticeship, prior to becoming a novelist, in journalism and film writing; however, he was mercilessly attacked by literary critics. From 1955 until his death he wrote 36 books that generated a total of $196 million dollars in sales.
