Beltrami Olivier, (9 Oct. 2002):
You'll love this [book] because you get to see the results, laid out in clean crisp typography, with many small details (holidays, moon phases, ...) that make this book a pleasure to use as a reference. Well worth the price.
J. O. Christensen, Choice (Mar 2003):
Readers who doubt that calendrical tabulations are of general interest should check their library's circulation records; in the reviewer's library, a number of the books were charged out. The authors, experts in this field, have published a number of works, including one containing the calendrical algorithms they used to prepare the tables. The preface provides a detailed explanation of each calendar and its idiosyncrasies to make comparison of the calendars much easier. References to sources of information about the various calendars evaluate what each source does or does not provide. Its more precise computer calculations make this work more accurate than some standards of the past. Seasons, stages of the moon, leap years, and holidays are indicated. A well-printed work is preferable to a computer version since computer versions become useless as computer hardware and software change. Although somewhat expensive, this work will maintain its usefulness for many years to come. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels.
Steve Bell, The Observatory (Apr 2003):
[A] fine reference work.
Pal Singh Purewal, Journal of Religious Studies (Spr-Aut 2003): excellent addition to the library of any individual who is interested in calendars and ... a must for main libraries.
James R. Moore, Trinity Journal (Spr 2005):
...absolutely indispensable...the result of a gargantuan task... The comprehensive nature of covering three hundred years is likely to address all calendrical needs of the present generation...readers will find Calendrical Tabulations 1900-2200 tremendously satisfying.
