Review Text

This is an absolutely brilliant home reference book. By combining material (especially illustrations) from existing Dorling Kindersley titles, and adding new material as well, the DK team has produced a visual delight which is informative and mostly accurate (there are occasional lapses - but they are indeed few and far between). The book is rounded off by a useful glossary and a fat index, with historical mini-timelines scattered through the text. As good an example of its kind as you could wish for. (Kirkus UK)show more
