The back cover reads:
"A mania is sweeping the world, as we prepare for the dawn of a new day, a new year, a new century, and now a new millennium, all in one monumental moment.
Millennium Mania is a fun and fascinating look at this global obession. In it you'll learn about the most far-flung celebrations, the most outrageous predictions, the sagest wisdom, and the strangest behavior that the millenium will inspire. From the pope's party plans to the ominous year 2000 computer bug, this fact-filled book contains 'everything millennium.'
'The millennium affects people the way moonlight affects werewolves, the way sirens affect dogs. ...' - Peter Carlson"
