30
Book of Ages · 30, by Joshua Albertson, Lockhart Steele, and Jonathan Van Gieson (Crown, $13.95), is a perfect gift for someone turning 30 (there are 4 million people hitting that milestone in the U.S. this year). A breezy miscellany of facts and observations is combined with short sketches of famous figures and what they had accomplished (or not) when they turned 30. The Book of Ages · 40 will be published next.
