Delves into the world of visualized data where stunning infographics that blend the facts with their connections, contexts, and relationships make information meaningful, entertaining, and beautiful. "In this sequel to the bestselling book The Visual Miscellaneum, author David McCandless uses stunning and unique visuals to reveal unexpected insights into how the world really works. Every day, every hour, every minute we are bombarded with information, from television, from newspapers, from the Internet, we're steeped in it. We need a way to relate to it. Enter David McCandless and his stunning infographics, simple, elegant ways to interact with information too complex or abstract to grasp any way but visually. McCandless creates visually stunning displays that blend the facts with their connections, contexts, and relationships, making information meaningful, entertaining, and beautiful. And his genius is as much in finding fresh ways to provocatively combine datasets as it is in finding new ways to show the results" --… (més)

This is the second of McCandless’s infographics book that I have read now, and this one is as spectacular as the first. They are a vast depositary of data and information that he has reformed into easy to read and simple to understand layouts. The range of subjects covered is vast, there are graphics on everything from the amount spent of drugs to oil, personal transport to movie plots, antibiotics to plant varieties.

There are fascinating comparisons on numerous subjects between the four largest economic powerhouses of the world, the USA, Europe, China and India, with clear graphics on the subject being studied and a winner for each of the categories. As with the first book, he has taken the details of his subjects and made them understandable and interesting to look at.

Like the first book, I am not convinced that the data he is showing is 100% accurate, but this is a book to show what can be achieved with infographics. The layouts are superb too, but I think that the choice of font colour sometimes was wrong, a dark grey font on a pale grey background is not the easiest to read. It is a good follow up to the first volume. ( )

A follow-up to the highly acclaimed Information is Beautiful, and a very similar one at that. Just like the first book, this is a collection of infographics and data visualizations on general-interest topics, including pop culture, food, health, nature and popular science. The approach is journalistic and entertaining rather than factual and meticulous; the work has attracted criticism from more principled scholars and experts in data visualization, but it has undeniable impact. The book serves well as a source of inspiration for interaction designers interested in visualization and visual storytelling.

A stunningly beautiful and fascinating collection of infographics presenting data from all manner of subject areas. This would make an interesting addition to any break-room or coffee table collection. ( )

Xmas present from sister. These are nice but it's getting to be much more about the design and a lot less about the information presented.

Interessante anche se a volte un po' ripetitivo ( )

Funny. The more I visualize data, information, and knowledge, the more I'm starting to feel and understand the differences between them.
