The CIA is separated into four basic components: the National Clandestine Service, the Directorate of Intelligence, the Directorate of Science & Technology, and the Directorate of Support.

For the past four years I've bought The Economist's excellent 'Pocket World in Figures'. This year I've also treated myself to The CIA World Factbook 2014.
The CIA book is completely different, with detailed sections for each country rather than league tables.
Some of the statistics are new (marked 'estimated July 2013'), most are fairly recent and a few are much older (as old as 'estimated 2003').
The type is small so you'll need good eyesight and/or a spotlight above the book. The country and regional maps are in greyscale, sometimes blurred and generally very poor.
I've spotted a couple of typos but so far haven't seen any glaring statistical errors.
This book is a great achievement, easy to dip into and a bargain. For around £6.36 (or let's say the price of three High Street coffees), Amazon will deliver this almost 1,000-page book to your door.

Loads of facts. This is not glossy - cheap paper and tiny print. A few gaps in the information. However, you can impress (or bore) your mates with impressive knowledge of the GDP of Moldova for example, or life expectancy in Guatemala.

An excellent guide for anyone who needs to know the specs on various countries, quickly. Lots of useful information, well laid out and easy to use. Need to know what language they speak in a given country? or the majority faith? or the main export? Population? and much more. All here. Dont be misled by the name of the book, it pretty accurate.

Thought this would be interesting but it's the most boring book you could imagine. Political facts about population, finances. Pages of figures. I thought there might be some criminology in it but no.
