Whitaker's Concise Almanack 2010 is the definitive reference guide to the UK.
A softback, shorter version of its big sister, Whitaker's Almanack, the Concise edition is a UK-centric goldmine of information with enormous breadth of coverage.
The main difference between this and the standard edition is that it doesn't include the international coverage of the standard edition, so the reader with an interest in UK facts and figures is really getting value for money at half the price.
Areas of coverage include: government and politics, communications, private and state education, religion, environment, cultural heritage, the UK legal system, royalty and peerage, social welfare (including pensions!), IT, mobile phone industry, environment, heritage, astronomy of course, and much more - quite simply, the UK in one volume! 'Whitaker's remains the most comprehensive compendium of information in the English language' Jon Snow
