I've been reading graphjam for a few months now, so when i heard about this book, it was a no-brainer. The graphs, charts, maps etc. are all very well designed and look beautiful. The references are vast, and i'd be impressed if any one person understood every single one without consulting the list at the back. They range from the everybody-should-know ones (Bohemian rhapsody by pitch), to the slightly obscure (place preference of Totos by year) to the insanely detailed (spider map of rappers).
Well worth a read and would make a good present or stocking-filler.

For a long-time GraphJam follower I thought this would be a great collection of its wittiest and funniest pop culture graphs. While it did mostly fit the bill, it unfortunately decided to hide them behind confusing graphics.
In an attempt to make it more dynamic and interesting for those that may be sick of looking at graphs, they used complicated pictures and messy detail to punctuate what was already a stroke of genius.
In my opinion it ruined the graph for me and a lot of them are difficult to decipher unless you know exactly what the graph is about. Luckily it has a useful list of the relevant pop culture origins in the back, but even for the ones I could recognise it lost the humour and the message.
It is nothing like graph jam, which tried to simplify pop culture down to nice neat nerdy diagrams which never failed to make me laugh.
Perfect for a person who may not be a seasoned internet lurker who is crazy about pop culture but certainly not for any GraphJam fans.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes humour and graphs. It combines the two perfectly. I didn't get all the references and had to look some of them up in the index (and still didn't get them) but that didn't lessen my enjoyment.

Everyday phrases, sayings and concepts expressed as graphs and pie charts. See also Pop Charts by Paul Copperwaite. You will definitely know someone who will love this.

Perfect stocking stuffer for the nerd in your life who was a teenager in the sixties. Graphs based on songs from that era. Hilarious. Will make your favorite nerd laugh out loud.

Great book if you like the web site 25 Feb. 2010
By Kelley C. Rethi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a very funny book that uses graphs and charts to reference funny favorites in pop culture(ex: probability of quitting as a function of legitimacy {aka- The Hammer Theorem}). I have been a fan of the graphjam website for a while and was looking forward to this book. While I found most graphs hilarious, a small handful were uninspired and there were a few that I didn't get the reference. Luckily, an index was provided detailing all of the pop culture references to help anyone scratching their head. All in all, I would suggest this book to anyone up for a good laugh. It is easy to pick up and read, especially if you just have a minute or two to kill and find some quality entertainment.

Hilarious, if you know your pop culture 4 Jan. 2014
By Joseph - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this book as a gift for my boss. I don't think he enjoyed it near as much as I did. A lot of music and movie references in it. If you don't know your 80's and 90's movies and music, you probably won't like this book. But if you do, its hilarious.
Lots of fun 16 Feb. 2010

Although there were certainly graphs I didn't get (probably based on songs I don't know or perhaps movies I haven't seen), the large number that I did know were almost universally amusing or even laugh-out-loud-able. I especially liked the Star Wars charts. I may buy another copy for a friend, because I think my friend would be entertained by this.

I don't get it. 25 Feb. 2013

I just don't get it. Maybe I need to be into math and graphs more (I'm not interested at all), maybe I'm too old. Gave it to the library.
