A bit gimmicky
by Matthew on March 18, 2008The Know-It-All makes an entertaining browse, but isn't a great book to just read through. The book is organized into dozens of small sections, headed with words from the Britannica; unfortunately, the sections are at times only loosely related to the heading. The writing is almost as disjointed as a volume of the encyclopedia itself.
Fine book for browsing, but no point investing any more time in it.
