    An astounding read

    The Wiley Encyclopaedia is one of those rare volumes you just cannot put down (or, for that matter, pick up). While this book is light on plot it is rich in technical detail, a haven for the fan of the more advanced techno-thriller. If you enjoyed the rollicking adventure of Der Neue Pauly or the engrossing characters in that perennial classic the Oxford English Dictionary, you'll be more than pleased with the depth and breadth of this magnificent work of technical literature. I cannot think of a better work to spend $10.000 on. Worth every penny.
