In its fifth year and it is still a great way to remember the year just passed, and to catch up on the items you missed.
As ever, there is the basic report on the year, with facts and figures covering everything from the Oscars to the MP expenses scandal. Colour is added to the reporting, for example the "Sachsgate" incident which lead to the sacking of Russell Brand is introduced with a Brief History of Swearing on Television.
This is all boosted with plenty of random information, such as the surface gravity on the planets and the objects banned from displays at the Chelsea Flower Show (which include, unsurprisingly, garden gnomes).
Packed with just as much information as previous years, this is still a great stocking-filler for Christmas.
