Format: Paperback
To keep up with the events of the past year, and to have as a ready reference those pieces of history that I continually need to refer to in the upcoming year, I always supplement my library every year with a new almanac. This year I considered procuring a copy of the Time Almanac,which is written in collaboration with the Encyclopedia Britannica.

Fortunately Barnes and Nobel bookstores permit you to sit on one of their chairs to read, read over a book that they hope you will buy.

With a clipboard in hand to jot down notes when reviewing the new collections of Almanacs for the year 2012 of what I thought would be items, facts, and other pertinent data that I feel I will need for the upcoming year I collected a stack of some half dozen various Almanacs and sat down to review them before making my selection.

As a retired military intelligence officer I like to have a current almanac, which I feel will give me the most up to date data collected by the various publishers of these Almanacs. I have never before purchased a copy of the Time/Encyclopedia Almanac. So this was at the top of the stack of Almanacs I sat down to review these reference books.

In addition to my other needs, are statistics. Statistics, when published, should be backed up by cold hard facts to give the reader the impression that the publisher has done their homework, and has backed up these statistics with references as to where and what source they got these statistics from.

Yearly Almanacs and Yearly Books of Facts that currently are in my library include such titles as published by the World Book Almanac, the New York Times Almanac, the CIA World Fact Book, and the Cambridge University Book of Facts.

Format: Paperback
I use almanacs like most other people do ,I guess. I use them as a statistical abstact. For this, I usually buy the World Almanac and Book of facts. I couldn't find it at a couple of Wal-Marts, but I found this one in a bookstore and bought it. Flipping through it, it looked OK, but this is a bad buy. When I want statistics, I expect them to be there, and easy to find. This book doesn't measure up on either count. I don't recommend this. It's a waste of money.

The condition of this book was unacceptable because it has some kind of mud looking glue on the back and the bottom of the book that make the pages stick together. Would really like a replacement of a NEW HARDCOVER EDITION that I ordered. :-(

Information is and always will be valuable in my household. I enjoy having such a broad pool of information and facts at my fingertips. Great for quizzing the kids. ;)
