Even though most of the information contained is available online somewhere, there's no comparison to a well-presented, high quality reference book as is always produced by The Times reference teams.
This book well bound, is packed with information & everything about it says "Quality". Colours & the depth of analysis & reporting is tremendous.
I have several of these now including one from 1941 & to see the differences in the world over the 70+ years between the editions. It's an education in itself & the quality of the binding & pages means that this is something that will pass the test of time, as the 1941 edition demonstrates.
Top quality reference book & well worth the money.
