"Schott's Almanac" redefines the traditional almanac to present a record of 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 economic meltdown and the assassination of Benazir Bhutto to the England-less Euro 2008 and the Beijing Olympics, and from the American presidential elections and the Hollywood writers' strike to Bond 22, Quantum of Solace and the creation of artificial life. The section headings include: Chronicle; World; Society and Health; Sci, Tech, Net; Celebrity and Media; Music and Cinema; Books and Arts; Travel and Leisure; Money; Parliament and Politics; The Establishment; Sport; and, 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".
