Learn about the world the fun way,
This review is from: New World Order: Every Country on Earth. Sorted. (Hardcover)
It's very difficult to learn about things, particularly when what you want to learn about is everything in the world. Handily, Dixe Wills has stopped roaming around obscure corners of Britain for a minute and written New World Order, a book that not only gives you all the pertinent facts (where it is, capital city, currency, size in relation to Wales) about every country (and quasi-country) in the world, but also manages to be very funny. This makes it a lot better than most other books that might try to teach you something. In fact it's a lot better than most other books full stop.
If you like the world, or even if you don't really like it much but want to know more about it (as ignorance never got anyone anywhere), then you should buy this book.
