Combining an impressive array of vital statistics with the informed analysis for which its namesake newspaper is renowned, The Wall Street Journal Almanac 1999 may just be one of the most important print resources that you can put on your desk this year. Beginning with an informed review of 1998--which ranges from a perceptive look at the impact of so-called lifestyle drugs and the Asian crisis to a thorough recounting of the year's top economic and general news--this fourth annual update, prepared by the newspaper's staff and edited by Ronald J. Alsop, will undoubtedly prove to be a publication that you turn to time and again for information as well as entertainment. Sections on "Politics & Policy," the "U.S. Economy," "Business & Industry," "Money & Investing," "Technology & Science," the "World," "Living in America," "Media & Entertainment," and "Sports" offer excellent perspectives by starting with overview essays and then mixing short articles on important facets of each topic under discussion with page after page of informative charts and graphs. And what other single volume will give you a breakdown on discrimination complaints in the workplace from 1993 to 1997, worldwide population projections by country for the year 2020, and complete NCAA women's basketball championship results since 1982? --Howard Rothman
