The World Book Difference

With an aggressive annual revision programme, NO other print encyclopedia is more up to date.

Every article is authored or critically reviewed and signed by an expert contributor.

Articles are carefully crafted to ensure that World Book meets the student where the student meets the subject.

Along with a team of over 4,000 scholars and expert contributors, the Encyclopedia is thoroughly reviewed by an Advisory Board of 14 distinguished scholars that are masters in their chosen field. These consultants specialise in a wide range of subjects from biochemistry to religious studies.

Bright Through Learning
The pink anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion) featured in the Spinescape® thrives in the sheltering but also stinging environment of an anemone’s tentacles. Among the meanings of the word bright are smart, clever, and quick—all helpful characteristics in our challenging world. This 2016 edition of The World Book Encyclopedia® adopts the pink anemonefish as a mascot to represent the encyclopedia’s invitation to you to become brighter through the learning you do within its pages!
