What is Pears? First published in 1897, "Pears Shilling Cyclopaedia" contained topics ranging from useful facts to questions of etiquette and a compendium of 'curious and useful information about things everyone ought to know in commerce, history, science, religion, literature and other topics of ordinary conversation.' Now 110 years later, "Pears" is still informing, intriguing and surprising new generations of readers with its mixture of up-to-the-minute facts and figures and little-known curiosities and it is the only book of its kind to be annually updated by experts. It combines accurate topical facts with a century's worth of accumulated knowledge. Far from just a yearly overview, this is the up-to-the-minute one-volume source. "Pears" is as British as cricket (there's coverage of the Ashes, World Cup and 40 years of Test results), Shakespeare (a useful precis of all his plays) and, of course, Britpop (an illuminating paragraph on musical style, history and the bands).
