Comments about Information is Beautiful:
Bought this for my husband for Fathers Day and he loves it. Has shown lots of our friends and family, many of whom have said they will buy this book themselves. You could spend hours browsing this book and learning lots. Check out their website for a sneak peak of some of the pages.
