The Spectator (3 Dec 2005) "Informative and entertaining family reference book." The Bookseller Christmas Books (Oct 2005) "Places, people, dates, animals, events - this 320-page tome is packed with enough facts to end any family dispute. A Christmas read to dip into again and again. Essential stuff." The Sunday Times (18 Dec 2005) "A lively, thematic miscellany of general knowledge." Culture (4 Dec 2005)
