A book about everything

Several months ago, the good folks at the World Almanac sent me an email asking if I'd like a free copy of the 2018 World Almanac and Book of Facts.  Being a Jeopardy! nerd, AND having a son who is majorly into the countries of the world, it didn't take me too long to reply with a resounding YES, PLEASE!

We received the book shortly after Christmas, and it is pretty darn impressive.  This is obviously not the kind of book you sit down and read from cover to cover, page by page.  But as a reference source, it is second to none.

Andrew and I have already flipped through it and read various facts about countries like Nigeria, South Sudan, and Brunei.  We looked up the monetary system of Argentina and Ecuador.  We looked up the current leadership of Mongolia.  We looked up the major exports of Texas.

But this book isn't just about geography.  It also lists winners/losers of the Oscars, population trends, the Constitution and its amendments, sports stats throughout the years, etc, etc, etc.  It's a trivia junkie's dream.

I'm thankful to the World Almanac people not just for providing ME with an invaluable reference source, but also for helping to keep my 5-year-old son interested in world facts (as he continues to become more obsessed with Angry Birds).

I would recommend this book to anyone.

Only downside: the typefont in this book is REALLY tiny, to fit in all those facts.  You may need to use a magnifying glass while using it.

By going through your experience, I assume this book it really worth it! Since my younger brother is into the Geography and Sports, I am gonna definitely buy it for him! Sounds like a nice gift though ;)
