Jessica Hagy's book, "Indexed," offers some unique, interesting...and often entertaining...insights into the world at large through the mediums of simple charts. The relationships Hagy points out in this book are insightful and often surprising.
While this book provides interesting and thought-provoking reading, it is light on content. The pages are not numbered and it took me approximately ten minutes to read the entire book.
Despite the book's brevity, it is worth a read. The question that potential purchasers should ask..and answer...is if the book is worth the price. The author offers content through a website (http://indexed.blogspot.com/), but I am not sure of the overlap of the web site's content and the content of the book.
In the final analysis, Hagy offers interesting perspectives on many facets of life through a basic medium...her content is worth consuming. This book may not be the best (or most economical) way to peruse her content, though.
