This book is a wealth of information on every conceivable topic you can imagine. It is a reference book that can settle disagreements, as well as start new ones. I like to browse through it just to pick up general information. It is arrange by general Areas of information and also contains an index for looking up specific items. I find when I look something up, I also wind up reading other nearby facts which catch my fancy. Not much of a plot, but totally absorbing.
