The bestselling classic has been revised and updated! A colorful guide to the world's most consequential trivia, Visual Miscellaneum by David McCandless is a reference book like no other. It helps us make sense of our world by putting the data we are bombarded with every day—health findings, technological advances, cultural touch points, war statistics—into creative visual perspective. Like Show Me How by Lauren Smith and Schott's Miscellany, only more complete and satisfying, Visual Miscellaneum is a treat for the mind and the eye.
