Information is Beautiful by David McCandless A visual feast that presents a fascinating range of facts in some intriguing ways. The political map is a favourite (I liked it so much I bought a signed copy)
 

 

 

 

 

This is not a book it is more of a LOOK but it is one that has something for everyone. There are plenty of topics covered and all in a creative and attractive style to challenge and inform. The book looks at everything from politics to religion and whilst it may not stay current for very long is an interesting snapshot of the beginning of the 21st century. The visuals are well worth taking time over as there are plenty of hidden gems, for example, every country is famous for something if you are in the USA that is serial killers, for the UK it is carrots – go figure.
