Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the modern age, where information is plentiful but selection and analysis elusive, Schott's Almanac presents a unique biography of the year: from Hillary Clinton's and Barack Obama's historic presidential runs to George Bush's continued infatuation with "the Google," from marriage and crime statistics to the incidence of shark bites worldwide, and from the Nobel Prize for Literature to the Bad Sex in Fiction award, Schott's Almanac distills information and opinions critically, giving readers an accurate biography of the year past.

 

Practical, entertaining, and utterly compulsive, Schott's Almanac eschews endless lists and tiny type to present an elegantly designed and utterly compulsive selection of the year's events.

Synopsis:

In the modern age, where information is plentiful but selection and analysis elusive, "Schotts Almanac" presents a unique biography of the year and distills information and opinions critically, giving readers an accurate biography of the year past.
