World Book full review

The core of the package is the encyclopaedia. Clicking on the main link opens a slick introductory interface with a rolling slideshow of media snippets. It’s very easy to find your way around using the web browser-inspired tools. Click on the search icon to find articles by keyword or flick through categorised pages with the Just Looking feature.

There are some handy extras too. If you wan to make your own notes you can add stickies to any article, then return to them later. Highlighter fans get virtual versions to mark up the entries in glorious day-glo.

Mac users get special content too, in the form of special Librarian and This Day in History widgets. You can even copy media clips direct to a video iPod.
