From the Back Cover
In this caffeine-induced, jet-fuelled, celebrity-a-minute world, what you need is instant information. Life in Five Seconds takes over 200 important events, inventions, great lives, wonders of the natural world and cultural icons... and then cuts away all the useless details. Told in witty pictograms that are provocative and to the point, the result is a hilarious visual snapshot that puts all of life into context. Laugh out loud as you identify everything from Santa Claus to Satan; Beethoven to Banksy; the Berlin Wall to the Great Wall of China; Elvis, Ikea, videogames and much, much more. This is the perfect book for anyone with a sense of humour... and a short attention span.
