A 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.

    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.
