The Answers Book is published by Master Books, and is written by Ken Ham, Jonathan Sarfati, and Carl Wieland. The editor is Don Batten. The book reviewed is the Revised and Expanded Version, Twenty-Seventh Printing, in October 2002.
This book takes what the young earth creation science authors consider to be the twenty most asked questions, and responds to them from a young-earth perspective. The book is offered for sale, or you may view it online at Answers In Genesis by clicking here.

In several of the chapters, the conflict between old earth/young earth is nonexistent, thus the review is short. Probably the most important chapters here are the chapters dealing with Noah's Flood and the Dinosaur chapter (19).
