Talkin' 'bout a brief encyclopedia of people. I was in the fourth or fifth grade when my Dad bought this, and I thought it's really interesting 'cause I always read it; it conveniently feeds my interest with people from different walks of life. Great images as well.

Helpful in identifying person and finding out a little bit about them. There is only a paragraph or so on each, but it serves as a good starting point.
