Format: Paperback
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 parts.
My teenage sons, my husband and my mother all loved it. They started quoting things that had caught their eye. It's funny, off-beat -- and really quite interesting.
Gift problem solved: everyone I know will love to get this for Christmas!

We just had to read it all the way thro' from the moment it arrived, Now we can amaze our friends with a mine of useful (and useless) facts and figures for things we never realised we wanted to know, but made for fascinating reading.

“Infographica” will appeal to anyone who is a fan of QI. It’s the same sort of mindset of slightly random but quite interesting data - from the World’s fastest roller coasters to the different patterns of age-related baldness and most points in between. Each is presented in a colourful graphic image that is generally themed on the subject matter. There’s no analysis of the data or search for causes - just good old data presented in a fun way. It’s great to dip into and some of the subject matter is genuinely surprising. This makes it a fun book for almost all ages. I have one gripe though - and it is quite a serious one. The authors do not give the sources for their information. This means that you cannot seek out more up to date information but more importantly means that you cannot get any clues as to the validity of the data. In an age where data and “facts” are all around us particularly with the Internet - it is more important than ever to ask “who says that?” in order to sense check for bias, reliability etc. I’m 100% sure that they didn’t make any data up, but if you don’t source your materials then how do we know for sure?

I am fascinated by books which contain interesting facts. However, this book contains both interesting and unusual facts, which makes it a must for people like myself. It is also very well illustrated.

This book is quite fun. I bought it to improve my graphic communication and whilst it really does show some nice graphics its more of a present or coffee table book.

One that will after a while gather some dust no doubt but worth having for those design blocks as a reference.

If you're the sort of person who likes nothing better than a feast of odd but fascinating facts, then this is the book for you. There's everything here from global stats about Angry Birds players to the luckiest numbers if you want to win the Euromillions lottery. Good graphics too and a great gift idea for Christmas. Recommended.

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.

Perfect for Christmas - fascinating, funny, random, thought provoking and rather beautiful. I'm pretty sure you couldn't find another book where you can learn to dance and discover which country has the highest percentage of bearded felons.
