Product Details

Praise

“Definitive and meticulously researched.” —Chicago Tribune

“In a highly readable style, nicely seasoned with occasional ironic touches, Denis Boyles limns the intricate business negotiations that went into the creation of the Eleventh Edition. . . . [He] provides excellent portraits of the key figures responsible.” —The Wall Street Journal

“A terrific tale.” —The Times Literary Supplement
 
“[An] enthralling business history.” —The Washington Post

“Entertaining. . . . Boyles writes with such a mordant touch his chapters move along even as they assault you with hurricanes of information.” —The Boston Globe
 
“Encyclopedic—weighty, but worthwhile.” —The Seattle Times
 
Everything Explained That Is Explainable almost reads like fantastic fiction. The book drops you into a time when print publishers possessed the same dynamism as today’s web developers and authors celebrated as much fame as prime time pundits.” —Paste Magazine
 
“A thorough and engaging telling of the Eleventh Edition’s conception and birth, midwifed by an eclectic group of madcaps who succeeded in producing a literary treasure the likes of which will never be seen again.” —National Review
 
“A suspenseful new work of history.” —Asheville Citizen-Times
 
“[A] colorful chronicle of how the legendary 11th edition of the Encylopædia Britannica came to be.” —The Christian Science Monitor
