Format: Hardcover
Please don't get me wrong -- I am not a Luddite. I use the Internet for most of my shopping and lots more than just reviewing here on Amazon (I even support and contribute to Wikipedia). But I always carried a fondness for the World Book Encyclopedia ever since the family of every kid in my grade-school class was reasoned with, nagged, and cajoled into getting its own set back in the Sixties. So much fun following the cross-references or just reading for fun, piling up several volumes and heading from desk to floor to accommodate them all (try doing THAT with notebook computers!). The World Book may never have put a nickel in my pocket but owing to my early happy nerdishness, I rarely lose a trivia contest. So, recently I was pleased to order a brand-new copy of the 2011 WB through the publisher for about $400; prices drop precipitously after the first year or two. This is the set with the Emperor Penguins stretched across the edges in a process the WB people call "Spinescape."

How much fun to have a 22-volume set of general knowledge to which the only technology I need to apply is my reading and good strong light! About twenty years ago I had been informed (or misinformed) that hardcopy World Books were terminally moribund, and that the only full sets being produced were dull, black-and-white jobs destined for countries that didn't have or couldn't afford classroom computers. How nice to see that today's World Book is colorful, crisp, fun, and very comprehensive. The only black-and-white illustrations in it are vintage photographs. I was happy to see that the "Human Body" article kept the transparent overlay sheets to depict the body all the way from skeleton to skin.

I ordered this set of encyclopedias for our school library and they are beautiful! Just as described, seller promptly replied to an email question regarding the books, and securely packaged, quick delivery. Our students are already enjoying the books on the shelf! Would definitely order from this seller again.

I ordered these books for my 86 year old mother.. We were both very pleased by the quality and the ordering/shipping process. The books brought back memories of my grade school days and they provide computer free access to info for my mother. Thanks.
