Editorial Reviews

Wall Street Journal
“An inventive follow-up to 2009’s cult hit “Information Is Beautiful.”...Mr. McCandless has a gift for revealing hidden structures, patterns and connections, and “Knowledge is Beautiful” is thought-provoking as well as startlingly attractive.”
HYPERALLERGIC
“From the amount the potential tax revenue from legalizing drugs worldwide to disappearing seed varieties, data journalist David McCandless transforms abstract information into engaging visuals. His book Knowledge Is Beautiful...has his newest graphics for making sometimes imperceptible connections accessible.”
