This review is from: Visual Aid: Stuff You've Forgotten, Things You Never Thought You Knew and Lessons You Didn't Quite Get Around to Learning (Paperback)(I will post the same review for both visual aids, as they are very similar)
Well, I have been surprised in a bad way.
In a way, I have been influenced by Amazon to get the two Visual Aids along with Information is Beautiful (which is great, by the way)
In this book, the vectors graphics are very poor, the information badly treated. The inforamtions displayed in are pretty basic and do not bring any of the intellectual excitement you can get from a visual dictionary or information is beautiful.
I would advice to avoid these two.
(As you may have noticed, I'm not a native English speaker, forgive me ^^)

I wish I had seen this review before purchasing. My husband really enjoyed Information is Beautiful, but when these turned up I was firstly surprised how small they were, think pocket sized) and some of the information was basic without any real understanding as to why it was put in the book. Disappointing. Will be waiting for the sequel to Information is Beautiful expected in 2012.
