The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2013 continues its strong tradition (since 1868!) of packing an immense amount of solid, quick-reference information at the browser's fingertips. The new 2013 edition includes data on America's 2012 election results, the 2012 Olympic records and results, a new "the World at a Glance" section, 2012's top 10 news topics, and a brief, full-color section of the "2012 Year in Pictures". A one-stop shop of data, statistics, charts, and graphs covering everything from science and technology to world maps & flags, sports highlights, and much more, The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2013 is highly recommended as an indispensable addition to public library collections.
