The bible for the modern information age has arrived. This unique, ground-breaking project makes sense of the countless statistics and random facts that constantly bombard us. The Visual Miscellaneum is designed to help us decipher vast amounts of statistics and research through brilliant, innovative graphics. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this single visual volume is worth an entire library of culture, philosophy, spirituality, ecology, society, technology, history, economics, and pop culture. Using cutting edge graphs, charts, and illustrations, David McCandless creatively visualizes the world's surprising relationships and compelling data, covering everything from sushi ingredients to Ultimate Fighting, celebrity marriage to Afghanistan, video game sales to oil. Some graphics include: how long it takes different condiments to spoil the many different ways civilization may end-and the likelihood of each the most pleasurable guilty pleasures everything that has ever been considered the new black cosmetic ingredients vs. lethality world maps of Internet search terms, fetishes, terrorism, abortion laws, and more. This provocative, wide-ranging, topical, and humorous book provides endless food for thought, and enlightens readers about the issues we hear about often, but have never actually managed to process-until now.
