NetLibrary's September eBook of the Month

The NetLibrary electronic book (eBook) service we subscribe to makes a specific title available each month to all subscribers. So even though we may not have purchased that title, it will be freely available for the month in which it is the "book of the month." The September eBook is The Economist Pocket World in Figures 2008. The book is published by The Economist.* The NetLibrary advertisement describes the book as follows:

Where is economic growth fastest or inflation highest? Who consumes the most energy? What country has the most asylum seekers? Who are the heaviest drinkers and smokers? If you want to know the answers to these, and thousands of other questions, you’ll find them in the September eBook of the Month.

Completely updated, revised, refreshed and expanded for 2008, The Economist Pocket World in Figures contains rankings on more than 200 topics in subject areas as wide-ranging as geography, population, business, the economy, trade, transport, finance, industry, demographics, the environment, society, culture and crime.
