An Almanac of Essential Information
by Susan C. Anthony
Fast facts for students, teachers, parents, grandparents and businesspeople. From the introduction: "Facts Plus is more than a collection of unrelated information. It presents in a concise and understandable format the basic core of information taught in schools and necessary for comprehending books and newspapers intended for the general public. It's arranged to provide a foundation and framework to help learners organize their growing knowledge. My students use Facts Plus as an authentic desk reference. With instant access to maps, charts, statistics and details, they begin to discover that they are capable of finding the answer to almost any question they might have in a book or the library. They gain confidence to use reference books of all types. That's power! That's learning how to learn."
