The rise of infographics across virtually all print and electronic media--from a striking breakdown of classic cocktails to a graphic tracking 200 influential moments that changed the world to visually arresting depictions of Twitter traffic--reveals patterns in our lives and our world in fresh and surprising ways. In the era of big data, where information moves faster than ever, infographics provide us with quick, often influential bursts of art and knowledge--on the environment, politics, social issues, health, sports, arts and culture, and more--to digest, to tweet, to share, to go viral.

The Best American Infographics captures the finest examples from the past year, including the ten best interactive infographics, of this mesmerizing new way of seeing and understanding our world.

This book is currently at the library as one of the Choice Reads.
It's an awesome book and an easy way to learn new things (some with some applicability to your life, some others just fascinating & a source of good trivia, such as when lions are more prone to attack humans).

Really cool book filled with interesting data and charts. Thought there would be only a couple of pages, there are a lot. Thinking about buying it. Would recommend
