If you remember 'The year book 19XX : a record of the events, developments and personalities of 19..' Published up until the mid seventies by Grolier. Then this is a very similar product, albeit in a much slimmer format (the Grolier volumes were built like old telephone directories or Church Bibles!). However, the meat of what happened during 1989 is still there! I even found a couple of news worthy articles that I took part in (now long since forgotten); so, that was quite amazing!

I have to give this 4.5 stars because, I could not find much that was not included - even if only as a foot-note. The missing 1/2 star was only because not much could beat the old Grolier Year Books for content value.

Sadly, by putting everything from here on, on-line as digital content; we are inadvertently assuring that in a thousand years all this data will be lost, and all future generations will know about who we were will end when the last of books like this one were published. A grim thought that nothing which we do now will be remembered by our great, great grandchildren. But, that's progress for you I guess. ( )
