I don't know what I would do without this reference book. I purchase one almost every year. It contains up-to-date information on everything: US cabinet members, historical events, politics, countries, states, lists of awards like Oscars, Emmys, Nobel Prizes, Grammies, etc., plus statistics on every sport, including the Olympics.
