This massive super brick of a book is a true doorstop. Rather than reading it through it would be better to go and check out something you are interested in. So if you use it as a reference it would be perfectly fine. Since it was printed in 2004, the book is rather out of date, but there is stuff in there that hasn't changed.

So if you like almanacs and other things this book does a good job of being that. ( )
