Review: The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2014 – the greatest fact checker in print

‘Just the facts maam’ was a catch phrase made famous decades ago, but the obsession with detailed, organized information has always been met with the annual World Almanac.

World Almanac 2014 book coverNow the 2014 version of the The World Almanac® and Book of Facts continues the tradition of providing a comprehensive encyclopedia of information on politics, science, health, sports, education and just fun trivia.

The salary for of the state’s governors, the top selling DVDs, the ethnic breakdown of Medicaid patients – challenge a friend on a fact and be pleasantly surprised our how detailed and accurate the Almanac still is today, in the age of the Internet.

Published since 1868, selling over 82 million copies, The World Almanac is still at the pinnacle of reference books.

“The are hundreds of pages of trivia and statistics that are essential for any sports fan, featuring complete coverage of the 2013 World Series, the brand-new National Women’s Soccer League, and much more,” touts the promotional material which doesn’t scratch the surface of the plethora of factoids in nearly 1,000 pages of information.

Described by many as an “institution,” the Almanac still amazes and provides a great, easy to use and fun handbook of millions of factoids.

The Global Dispatch can say that The World Almanac sits on our reference shelf, full of dog-eared pages, sticky notes and flagged categories marking some of our fact checking.
