Discover the World Book difference at the World Book website
World Book updates its content more thoroughly and often than any other encyclopedia. Most multi-volume reference books revise 5 percent of their total pages. Each year, World Book revises more than a quarter of its entire content. This comprehensive adjustment covers: Topics, Vocabulary, Grade level, Interest level, Writing style, Maps, Photographs and Charts and graphs.
World Book articles are comprehensive and give readers a solid foundation about a subject, and are a vital resource for any student, or children. World Book encyclopedias contain numerous pictures and diagrams, as well as comprehensive - yet easy to follow - information on each of the thousands of topics.
World Book encyclopedias set the standard for modern encyclopedia and learning, with articles rich in content and images. A list of related World Book articles encourages readers to broaden their study of a subject. Many articles also include booklists that lead the user to further reading on the subject. These lists of books have been carefully selected to represent the most current, balanced scholarship.
