This area contains a small group of boulders a few hundred yards below The Book, in the field on the south side of the trail. These boulders include "The World's Greatest Boulder" which is apparently not exactly that.
Head towards The Book. This area is found on the south side of the trail, a little beyond the turnoff for The Book

Talked to some Forest Service guys up here today and they actually pointed me towards the 'greatest boulder'. Just make sure to stay on the trails at all times.
