The facts are all there, but the navigation leaves much to be desired. I would recommend the paperback as a better choice.

it is a great compendium of a lot of different things you might want to look up about the world..... whether it's, say, what country we import the most oil from, what trading partners or leader a small country somewhere that you just heard about in the news has, or info about a newsworthy event last year, this is the quickest place to go for it. In my opinion this is almost as essential as a dictionary for a book you should have at arm's reach when you need it.

I'm an information junkie and, for years, I bought the paper version of "The World Almanac and Book of Facts." I'm glad to see it's now available as an e-book!

The book takes an extraordinary amount of time to open on my Nook SimpleTouch, or I would have rated it higher.
