A guide to the world like no other, this vivid and comprehensive book offers the best of National Geographic and more: science, nature, history, world cultures, geography, and the environment, illustrated with amazing photography, fascinating infographics, and maps created by expert cartographers. Highlights this year include the James Webb telescope, launching in 2021; a brand-new wildflower guide; a guided tour of the moons of our solar system; a beautiful infographic on jellyfish; and a feature on lithium, central to the work of recent Nobel prize-winning chemistry.
Divided into lively chapters including Exploration & Adventure, Life on Earth, and The Science of Us, this year’s almanac features top photos from National Geographic’s celebrated Instagram account and geniuses past and present including Jane Goodall, Amelia Earhart, and acclaimed conservationist Kris Tompkins, dedicated to preserving much of Patagonia.
With new discoveries on every page, this cutting-edge book–called a “category buster” by Booklist–brings you, as Publishers Weekly puts it, “all the things that National Geographic does best.”
What a great book! Chock full of exciting and fascinating information, National Geographic's Almanac 2021 will have you looking forward to the upcoming year. Then again, considering how 2020 has been, how could we not be looking forward to a new year already, right?
