Anime Encyclopedia 2 reviewed at Anime on DVD

It's a Xmas treat (really, it's dated 12/25/06) to get a new review for The Anime Encyclopedia Revised & Expanded posted at Anime on DVD:

"If I only had space on my overcrowded shelf for one book on anime, this would be it. If I had no space on my shelf I'd select two books at random and drop them into the bin, just to make room- it's that indispensable."

Another solution is to buy several copies of The Anime Encyclopedia 2 and build a new shelf with them. They are that sturdy!
