How would you like having the world under your thumb? 

With The World Almanac® and Book of Facts 2014®, a travel-size treasure trove of facts, you not only have the world under your thumb, you have all the answers.

Instructions: simply flip the thousand-page book over and flop open the back cover. The Quick Reference Index offers a main menu of topics ranging from Academy Awards to Zodiac Signs and their corresponding page numbers.

We may not know what the New Year heralds, but now we know everything that has happened, including the most memorable milestones of 2013, which Winter Olympic moments in years had us at the edge of our seats, and what essential information can prepare voters for the November 2014 elections. All these facts and more can be found in the new edition of America’s best-selling reference book. 

The World Almanac® and Book of Facts 2014 takes on a more dynamic, contemporary cover design this year. Always timely, yet timeless, this latest edition of America’s best-selling reference book offers a history book, reference source, and news archive all-in-one, packed with essential facts and statistics unavailable to the public elsewhere. 

Brand-new features include:

  • Marriage in America: A Changing Picture”: provides an intriguing look at the changing demographic trends behind the institution of marriage, family structures, and social attitudes in the United States.

  • Memorable Winter Olympic Moments”: a look at The World Almanac® editors’ favorite moments of the past Winter Olympics, preparing readers for the 2014 Games.

  • Voter Guide”: provides readers with a simple, state-by-state source for key November 2014 election dates and information.

Meanwhile, popular annual sections like “Year in Sports,” “Top 10 News Topics,” “The World at a Glance,” and “Time Capsule” make their return. Sixteen pages of full-color glossy photographs, complete global maps, and what appears to be an entire encyclopedia are sandwiched in-between the front and back covers. Being a Know-It-All has never been so easy.

Warning: unless you comfortably read letters the size of a period, have a good magnifying glass ready. The small-size paperback version fits easily into a purse or briefcase, but at the sacrifice of font size. Still, this annual publication packs so much reading into one small book that the compact design makes you feel like you have the world's best go-to source for thousands of facts that are unavailable publicly elsewhere. 

This handy information-packed volume should make a great stocking-stuffer for Christmas and Holiday gifts, a must-have for 2014 high school and college graduates, as well as everyone else. The World Almanac® and Book of Facts 2014 ($13.99) is available in print and as an eBook for all platforms. 

The world isn’t passing you by. It just went into The World Almanac® and Book of Facts 2014.
