Top 10 Most Useful Reference Books 2014 #3

3. 




Ever since I began collating reference books for quizzing purposes, Brewers Dictionary of Phrase and Fable as barely been out of my hands. Not quite an Encyclopaedia, not quite a dictionary this book is hard to classify other than to say it contains reams of interesting and useful facts and tales. Its one of the few A-Z reference books that is readable from page 1 to the end and it also  is the perfect "pick up and browse" title, the only risk being you will find it hard to put down. One of the finest reference books on the market in my eyes and an endless source of fascination.
