Format: Paperback
For people who have questions on everything, this book will have the answer on near any subject. This book covers from pesticide pollution by country to Pulitzer Prize winners since 1918. Tug of war world championships winners to silhouette illustrations of all international space launchers.
It’s a book you will come back to again and again or just as easily read for entertainment.

Good Book. Lots of interesting Facts and Statistical info. However the info is a little outdated. Would like to see more pictures or illustrations.
