This is a terrific one-volume, one-stop reference, handy when you need that particular fact right now and don't want to go any farther than the stack of books you keep by your desk. From Queen Boadicea whipping the Romans' butts before taking poison to a list of world-champion orienteers (1970? Why, Stig Berge, of course) to an atlas section with maps on earthquake zones and global warming and acid rain patterns, this uber-tome has it all.Book Description:
