Acclaim for the 2013 Observer's Handbook continues to pour in, as the popular astronomy review site Cloudy Nights has praised the publication for both its breadth of information and ease of use. 

According to reviewer Tom Trusock, the 2013 Observer's Handbook "is a one of a kind resource that every amateur should have at their fingertips."

There are only a limited number of copies of the Observer's Handbook 2013 left so we suggest you take Trusock's advice and "Just get it. And sooner rather than later."
