Editorial Reviews


"This cornucopia of lists, charts and blocks of brightly illustrated information about facts both strange or important, drawn from every conceivable subject and then divided into 20 sub-sections, has a lot to offer all ages." The Independent (16 Dec 2005) "A mine of useful and useless information and could prepare prospective contestants for victory in 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?'" 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)
