Numberland - Mitchell Symons

Numberland by Mitchell Symons interprets the world around us through numbers, breaking the most fascinating and revealing of facts down to their bare bones. The world is full of fascinating facts and statistics, but presented without context and in no particular order they can be overwhelming. For example, did you know that the average eyelash lasts five months? That 400 quarter-pound hamburgers can be made out of one cow? Or that the average human will grow 590 miles of hair in their lifetime? Ordered in easily digestible sections such as 'Around the World', 'the USA', 'Money', 'Religion' and 'History', the book navigates an ordered path through a noisy world of information overload.
