Review:

Like any good world almanac, The Cambridge Factfinder contains a ton of obscure information that you conceivably might need to know, but won't necessarily remember: the population of Iceland (268,000), the 1935 American League Most Valuable Player (Hank Greenberg, Detroit Tigers), and a chart of bones in the human body (there are 208 of them). It even includes a list of world championship trampoliners. The maps and other graphics are exceptional--much better than the ones appearing in similar volumes--and all measurements are helpfully listed in both metric and American units. It is an excellent all-purpose, single-volume reference book.

Book Description:

The Cambridge Factfinder is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date general factbook available. Unlike most factbooks, it has a very full index (running to some 130 pages), which allows users to find information quickly and reliably. The book provides accurate answers to the widest possible range of questions.
