2011 - Booklist - Editor's Choice
"The first edition of this five-volume work appeared in 2000 and received a warm reception from reference book reviewers. As well it should...this reviewer is pleased to state that an already very good reference set has been elevated to a great one. Whether the question involves The A-Team television show, breast implants, Coca-Cola, or myriad other aspects of high and lowbrow culture, the interesting and informative answer may surely be found within these pages. Strongly recommended for purchase by all public and academic libraries. - Library Journal STARRED Review, September 2013"
