Schott’s Almanac

Ben Schott

Schott’s Almanac redefines the traditional almanac to present a record the year just past and a guide to the year come. It is designed to be a practical and entertaining annual volume, that tells the real stories of the year, from the winner of Celebrity Big Brother to tax freedom day 2007, and from the devastating earthquake in Pakistan and its aftermath to the stand-off between Russia and the Ukraine over gas supplies to Western Europe, and from the collapse of Ariel Sharon to Elton John’s ‘Gay Marriage’. . Section headings are: Chronicle; World; Society & Health; Sci, Tech, Net; Celebrity & Media; Music & Cinema; Books & Arts; Travel & Leisure; Money; Parlimanent & Politics; The Establishment; Sport; Ephemerides. In an age when information is plentiful but selection is rare, Schott’s Almanac offers both the essential facts and the lucid analysis, combining the authority and accuracy of the Economist with the wit and vitality of Have I Got News for You.
