Everyone I've shown this book to loves it, and becomes a real conversation piece. Each visualisation has a whole story to tell. Hard to explain but easy to understand once you see it. Trust me, you'll love this book and so will the somebody your thinking of getting it for. And if you haven't seen it yet yourself you're in for a real treat!
(Oh and this is the same book as Information is Beautiful which is the UK version - so don't make the same mistake I did and buy both!)
