5.0 out of 5 stars The Best All-Round Cyclopedia
I bought this as I have an original Pears from 1957 and thought it would be good to the differences in 50 years of publication. Thankfully, the differences are minimal and the updated information is just as good as ever it was. Pity Amazon couldn't deliver though after over a month of trying, but a market-place seller could and delivered almost next day, so very pleased.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do you really need such a book when you have Google?
Answer yes. When we were staying with my mother and had bought her this book how glad we were on a wet afternoon with the internet down that we were able to do a cryptic crossword - still needed complete works of Shakespeare to complete but this book generally had it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pears Cyclopaedia 2007 - 2008, 11 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Pears Cyclopaedia 2007-2008: A Book of Reference and Background Information for All the Family (Hardcover)
I'm delighted with the book at the price I paid (under £4), excellent value. One little niggle is that it was advertised as new but it did not have a dust jacket and there is a stain on the back cover. It is in good condition, but not 'new'.

I was unaware of this book until my Godmother ask for it at Christmas. I was amazed by the amount and range of information it contained in such a small volume. The size means it is not at all frightening. An excellent reference book.
