Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Calendars, Conversion Tables From 60 Ancient and Modern Calendars to the Julian and Gregorian Calendars?

Includes many calendars worldwide but has errors  Mar 17, 2008
This book contains calendars from a wide variety of sources, including Hebrew, Gregorian, Islamic, Central American and more. It uses tables rather than formulas to base its work, and can be useful in looking up a date in an unusual calendar to see when in our calendar it came. It lacks detail, however. I would have liked to have seen how the Hebrew calendar computes its Rosh Hashana, and how the Christian calendar computes Easter. I note that the epacts given for the Christian calendar in the 1900s are incorrect, and the calendars only go up to the year 2000- apparently the author did not think the book would be around in the 21st century.
 
Goldmine of misinformation  Nov 11, 2005
The 'Book of Calendars' is known among those who study calendars to be an embarassment. The tables are replete with calculation errors and typos. Calculated dates often bear no discernible relation to the background text. The narrative text is also misleading, and filled with partial material. Often, it is simply wrong.

Virtually the only feature of value is the lofty goal. Such a book, if it contained accurate information, would be a rich resource. Sadly, this text does not even come close. I am frankly puzzled that a publisher would even bother to re-print this work, given its very poor reputation.
 
Do not buy this book!  Jun 3, 2005
This book is best avoided because of the embarassingly large
numbers of errors. None of the tables is to be trusted; the textual material is also unreliable.

The book is well-known among the calendarist community as a disaster. It is a pity that it has been reissued.
