9780141026220: The Penguin Factfinder (Penguin Reference Library)

Our very own 'national treasure' (as declared by John Humphrys) David Crystal brings us yet another quintessential knowledge compendium. The new edition of The Penguin Factfinder has been fully revised and updated to reflect recent changes in politics, sport, culture and the arts to the end of 2006.

In an age where information is easy to find but hard to verify, Crystal brings us a refreshingly straightforward resource. The Penguin Factfinder is about facts no jargon or flowery descriptions, no error messages or anonymous sources just the basic facts from one of Britain's most trusted and authoratitive information providers. We believe every word to be true. Where else can you get a guarantee like that?
