Kirkus UK
Over 100,000 international biographies, from the Danish poet Aakjaer to the Russian-US electronic engineer Zworykin. Up to date to 1996, it runs to over 1000 pages. Some entries are enlivened by quotations from their subjects, some by good-sized photographs, some by recommendations for such further reading as biographies or memoirs. Unstuffy in its choice of subjects, the encyclopedia is browsable as well as business-like. (Kirkus UK)
