The difference is in the details. After all, what distinguishes a clementine from a mandarin orange, an iris from a pupil, the sea from the ocean, a bee from a wasp, and the Netherlands from Holland? Sometimes, the delineations are obvious. More often than not, what sets two seemingly similar things apart is overlooked and under-explained.

Illumination is here: This content-rich book breaks down the distinctions between an impressive collection of pairs – from animals to food to geography, fashion, and more –offering enlightening trivia, amusing tidbits, and unforgettable facts in a highly browsable format. Dip in and out to feed your mind, or delve into the details and stay awhile. With a bold, graphic art style and accessible yet content-rich text, this smart miscellany will enrich and delight curious minds (or is it brains?!).

Industry Reviews

"The non-stop trivia, presented in clear infographic-style illustration, is fairly addictive, so it is easy to devour the book in one go." -- BookTrust
