5.0 out of 5 stars I Love This Book!
Simon and Martin Toseland have collected a near-pythonesque range of weird and wonderful facts and statistics, to make you marvel at the quirks of the modern world. Infographica gives an unusual and sideways take on the bizarre trivia of life.
The excellent graphic design adds wit and warmth and takes it to a level where it becomes much more than the sum of its...

1.0 out of 5 stars A real page-turner
Looking at the reviews, this book divides people with only one or five stars at the time I write this review.

This review is from: Infographica: The World As You Have Never Seen It Before (Paperback)

Like the theory behind graphic representation of data but this feels a bit familiar after a bout half way. It's not a page turner but a great coffee table read or general kindle HD eye candy as I use it.

Good for a quick read but some graphics were overcrowded and hard to make out, especially on a kindle. Interesting and fun book though!

Bought this book for my 12 year old son who is into facts and figures! He loves it and we have all had a look at it and enjoyed the pictorial representations.

This review is from: Infographica: The World As You Have Never Seen It Before (Paperback)
The illustrators of this book, Jesse Brown and Mark Bryson, deserve huge credit for illustrating and making all of the random facts memorable and interesting with their clever and imaginative infographics - truly a master class in how it's done.

This review is from: Infographica: The World As You Have Never Seen It Before (Paperback)
I bought this book on the strength of the reviews at the time. I gave it to my brother as a birthday present. I looked like a right ... Insert expletive here. This book is rubbish and the graphics are terrible. Your book is bad and you should feel bad. Come to think of it, why not Zoidberg? Seriously though, this book is toilet so don't waste your money. I just wonder if the other reviewers actually read the book...
