Compact, colorful, comprehensive

  • Feb 10, 1998
At 768 pages and crammed with colorful maps and illustrations, the ÒFamily EncyclopediaÓ offers snippets of information in more than 13,000 entires in a format that is ideal for a home office. Call it a super-dictionary, the format is ideal for those of us of which to put to rest a particularly pesky questionable bit of trivia but without access to a set of encyclopedias. The "Family Encylopedia" can supply answers to a host of questions. It shows a diagram of how a Digital Audio Tape records sound, reveals Joan Crawford's real name (Lucille Fay le Sueur), and describes the properties of rudidium (which, as we all remember from high school chemistry, is the silver-white metallic element of the alkali metals).
