Reviews and Awards

“…provides useful consumer-oriented information that would be useful in most public libraries.”
American Reference Books Annual

"...authoritative, up-to-date, and practical encyclopedic information...World events (e.g., 9/11) and the growing emphasis on the role of stress in mental and physical health justify this new edition. Well written and concise, it is suitable for ninth-grade through college levels and is highly recommended for both public and specialized collections."
Library Journal

"Recommended."
