Having been an avid reader and, to a much smaller extent, writer, for very many years. During these years I have found the Whitakers Almanac to be an indispensable source of quick and concise reference for the many events and goings on of the previous year and indeed years in all matters, Nationally and Internationally.
For those people who like to have a quick reference of events and goings on Nationally and Internationally, I heartily recommend this book, not just for this previous years reference, but for a year on year reference that builds up to a library collection of references over the years that one purchases this book, an encyclopaedic record, if you will.
It really is quite indispensable in this respect.
