What can I say? The book is an incredible collection of every notable historical event in the last 100 years.
The BEST part, to me, is the "chain reference" feature. When you get to the bottom of an article (about, say, the completion of the Hindenburg), there is a small date in italics at the end which points you to the next article concerning the Hindenburg. This is OUTSTANDING for following a chain of events through history.
GREAT reading for knowledge or leisure!
