Synopsis

This is not just another atlas! From the origins of the human species to how much time people around the world spend on holiday; from the relationship between a country's wealth and its types of deadly disease to education rates versus average income; Who We Are And How We Live takes a unique look at our globe. Using innovatively designed maps alongside infographics, graphs and icons, this book explores the bigger picture of topics such as health, education, religion, language and politics.

Explore in-depth how countries are governed around the globe, who has the highest obesity rates, how urbanisation rates affect the environment and how the life expectancy in a country is linked to its sanitation levels. The maps not only give an overview of location, but also provide a wealth of fascinating information that is beautifully designed.

Written and illustrated by the award-winning Jon Richards and Ed Simkins, this book is another perfect example of how innovative design can deliver facts and figures in an absorbing and immediate way.
