Get thousands of facts right at your fingertips with this updated resource.

The World Almanac® and Book of Facts is America's top-selling reference book of all time, with more than 82 million copies sold. Published annually since 1868, this compendium of information is the authoritative source for all your entertainment, reference, and learning needs. Praised as a “treasure trove of political, economic, scientific and educational statistics and information” by The Wall Street Journal, The World Almanac® contains thousands of facts that are unavailable publicly elsewhere — in fact, it has been featured as a category on Jeopardy! and is routinely used as a go-to, all-encompassing guide for aspiring game show contestants. The 2013 edition of The World Almanac® and Book of Facts will answer all of your trivia questions — from history and sports to geography, pop culture, and much more.

One of my favorite books ever. I still remember receiving my first copy as a kid, around 1978. I could escape into a world if facts, tables, data, maps, lists and photos. I still escape and I usually buy a new copy each time there are complete election statistics.
