I am happy with my purchase, it is packed with facts and figures, however it is very Americanized so I probably won't refer to it as often as I had hoped.

I first picked up a copy in 2006 on my first visit to the USA. I was impressed with the contents and continued getting it on subsequent visits. So I was delighted to see I could purchase it on Amazon. It is well worth the money
