For anyone involved in infographic design, this is a terrific resource. Many styles of data visualization are covered, and it's proved quite helpful.

Information is everywhere, we see so much of it everyday that a lot of it is often just blocked out.
This books shows a new way of understanding and getting information in an uncomplicated manner. Straight, simple forward and even humorous.

I love this book! It presents information in artistic, graphic forms, which is perfect for the visual learner and makes it a perfect "coffee table" book. I bought a number of them for gifting to friends and family. Spend a minute or spend an hour....(although it's very hard to put down after a minute!)

5.0 out of 5 stars visual challenge, April 6 2010
This review is from: The Visual Miscellaneum: A Colorful Guide to the World's Most Consequential Trivia (Paperback)
this is a fascinating collection of facts presented as figures, eg. the colour associated with certain emotions around the world, which is presented as a wheel; or the contents of salad dressings presented as coloured levels in bottles. some pictures are so detailed they take a while to read, but the level of detail on so many different topics means you can read this book from front to back, in reverse, a random page at a time, for a few minutes or a few hours.

Great coffee table book but also excellent reference for those, like me, that must communicate complex ideas for a living. Visual Miscellaneum is full of ideas on how to deliver content easily and in a fun and simple way. Can't wait for the next book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun to browse, but puts looks over content, Jan. 30 2010

This review is from: The Visual Miscellaneum: A Colorful Guide to the World's Most Consequential Trivia (Paperback)
I enjoy leafing through this book, and always come across something thought-provoking. There is plenty of fascinating data and insight to keep anyone with a quantitative or aesthetic bent happy for hours. The designs are mostly intricate double-spreads, though some extend over several pages. Some are funny, some depressing, and the spare style leaves the reader to think about each graphic for themselves. However, sometimes I would have liked some discreet commentary, or more specific details of the data source. And some of the designs are abstract to the point of dumbness: maybe they look nice, but it's just not clear what they are about. Others are too large for their information content, or use colour too arbitrarily.

4.0 out of 5 stars A coffee table book, Dec 29 2009

This review is from: The Visual Miscellaneum: A Colorful Guide to the World's Most Consequential Trivia (Paperback)
A pleasant book to display on your coffee table. The material quality is good with just the correct 'weighty-feel' for displaying on that glass table top. Full of colourful and uniquely presented statistical trivia that you never thought you'd be interested in. Engaging enough to read when you have a spare 5 minutes during the day but inconsequential enough to pick up just before bedtime and read until your eyelids get heavy.
