A wonderland of fascinating and illuminating information,
This review is from: Information is Beautiful (Hardcover)
I bought this for my brother (late 50's) for his birthday. He is a difficult person to find a present for but this book has proved to be such a big hit with him (and his 4 teenage children)- I really couldn't have found a better gift. It's the kind of book that once you start, it is difficult to restrain yourself from turning the next page - I found it quite a struggle to actually wrap it up! The information is sometimes topical, always fascinating and always presented in a colourful, eye catching way. It is not the kind of book that simply lists facts and statistics - it really brings them to life. You will find yourself saying " Did you know that...?" but refusing to hand the book over to anyone else to look at! A work colleague has already purchased 2 copies on my recommendation for her husband and brother - an all round winner in my opinion.
