"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 Encylop�dia Britannica came to be." --The Christian Science Monitor
