About this title

Synopsis:

The Cambridge Factfinder is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date general factbook available. Since its first publication in 1993, the book has been regularly revised and updated, gaining a reputation for its accessibility and for the breadth of its coverage. Unlike most factbooks, The Cambridge Factfinder has a very full index (running to some 130 pages), which allows users to find information quickly and reliably. Helpfully organised into thematic sections which cover everything from science and technology through sports and games to religion and mythology, with a very thorough summary of statistics relating to countries of the world, the economy, communications, and world history, the book provides accurate answers to the widest possible range of questions. This is the ultimate one-stop reference work for anyone with an enquiring mind or a regular need to check facts and figures.

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.
