Perfect for the Internet generation, Information Everywhere (formerly published as Look Now: The World in Facts, Stats, and Graphics) provides readers with a new way of exploring, reading, seeing, and understanding the world around them by combining facts, figures and statistics with illustrations and photographs to present complex information in a simple format.
From skyscrapers scaled to show the population density of cities to a pyramid chart showing the youngest and oldest populations by country, the visual representations will entrance readers as they learn more about the world around them. Whether it's sweeping general data (How much cash is there in the world? How many people are there on the planet? How do teenagers spend their time?) or fun facts (What are your chances of being killed by a coconut? How does a cocoa bean become a chocolate bar? What countries celebrate what holidays?), Look Now will keep kids coming back for more.
