Visually stunning but lacking in hard data.
Reviewed in the United States on October 3, 2019
Much in the style of theNational Geographic magazine, the Almanac is rich in sizable photographic illustrations. But when compared to the World Almanac and Book of Facts, the NG Almanac offers much less comprehensive information. It's a great and attractive book for browsing through, but with many large-sized pictures there is scant room for also providing textural data. Use this attractive volume for a nice overview of the visual world and even the Universe, but when statistical data is needed, go to the World Almanac.
