A visual guide to how the world really works, through stunning infographics and data visualisations, thoroughly revised, recalculated and reimagined for this new digital edition.
We are overwhelmed by information – from our phones, our televisions, our computers, our newspapers. This ebook 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 new digital edition of Information is Beautiful has been specifically tailored for the iBookstore and brings the content of this classic book to life with videos, scrolling graphics and live links.
This is information as 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.
‘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
