Schott's Almanac 2007
Bloomsbury, 2006/10/31 - 352 ページ
Schott’s Almanac redefines the traditional almanac to present a record of the year just past and is designed to be read, not merely consulted. Practical and entertaining, it tells the real stories of 2006, from the winner of American Idol to the Supreme Court nominations (including how different justices have voted), from baseball and football statistics to the founder of amazon.com’s new private rocketship factory. In an age when information is plentiful but selection is rare, Schott’s Almanac offers both the essential facts and the lucid, provocative analysis. It is comprehensive, innovative, endlessly engaging – in short, indispensable.
