About this book

A visual guide to the way the world really works. Every day, every hour, every minute we are bombarded by information--from television, from newspapers, from the internet, we're steeped in it, maybe even lost in it. We need a new way to relate to it, to discover the beauty and the fun of information for information's sake. No dry facts, theories or statistics. Instead, "Information is Beautiful" contains visually stunning displays of information that blend the facts with their connections, their context and their relationships--making information meaningful, entertaining and beautiful. This is information like you have never seen it before--keeping text to a minimum and using unique visuals that offer a blueprint of modern life--a map of beautiful colour illustrations that are tactile to hold and easy to flick through but intriguing and engaging enough to study for hours.
