Review: The People's Almanac

User Review  - David - Goodreads

The People's Almanac by David Wallechinsky (Doubleday 1975) (031.32+/-). This is billed as “the first reference book made to be read for pleasure. It was a sheer pleasure to wallow for hours in this fascinating book; there had never before been anything like it. My rating: 8/10, finished 1976. Read full review

Review: The People's Almanac #3

User Review  - David - Goodreads

The People's Almanac #3 by David Wallechinsky (Bantam 1981) (031.32+/-). Here's the third collection of outstanding and absolutely useless trivia. I read it cover to cover, and it's great fun to browse. My rating: 7.5/10, finished 1983. Read full review
