    DescriptionA visual guide to how the world really works, through stunning infographics and data visualisations, thoroughly revised, recalculated and reimagined for this new edition. We are overwhelmed by information - from our phones, our televisions, our computers, our newspapers. This new edition of Information is Beautiful has been revised throughout with over 20 updates and 20 new visualisations. It offers shelter from the flood by visualising data in a new way that blends facts with their connections, their context and their relationships - making information meaningful, entertaining and beautiful. This is information like you have never seen it before - easy to flick through but also engaging enough to study - information that comes to life in your hands and your eyes.

    Review quote
    'Unbelievably brilliant' - Vogue '(a) terrific compendium of visual information' - Shortlist 'thought-provoking, lovingly crafted and informative; a handsome book that anyone would be grateful to receive' - The Independent on Sunday 'In this intriguing book, David McCandless presents a cavalcade of compelling and colourful graphics, each one innovative in its attempt to offer a new perspective on some of our most pervasive twenty-first century obsessions' - Time Out 'Stunning' - The Sunday Times 'thought-provoking, lovingly-crafted and informative; a handsome book that anyone would be grateful to receive' Picked as one of the best science books of the year in Arts & Books, Independent on Sunday 'What David McCandless has done is genius... dry data is transformed into small pieces of pop art that engage so much you end up learning more, without realising it. The ideal encyclopaedia for the information age.' Red Handed
