5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful 28 Jan. 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the facts recorded. I looked up several countries which were familiar to me to a greater or lesser extent and felt the info was most useful. It also proved to have an unexpected use: to aid me in a crossword puzzle!

5.0 out of 5 stars So much information 17 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase
So much info, so quickly available. From the political parties in New Zealand to the number of paved runways in St. Helena. If you a) travel a lot, or b) enjoy losing yourself in reams of information you'll seldom need, this is for you.
