No one loves the internet more than we do, but there is something special about this annual all-purpose reference. Forty years of consulting have not dulled our sense of appreciation; in fact, we can affirm that thousand page 2012 edition is the best yet. This well-indexed fact pack makes it easy to come up with the information you need about hundreds of subjects. This year's edition of the top-selling reference book of all time includes a 2011 Time Capsule; a Year in Sports review; a thoroughly revised World at a Glance section; features on The Year in Review and The Year in Pictures; a section on U.S. colleges and universities; and a revealing detailed breakdown of 2010 census data. A browser delight at a bargain price.
