People on Earth

View All Available Formats & Editions


This visually exciting book takes a unique look at our globe from the perspective of all the people on Earth. Using an innovative design, maps are populated by infographics, graphs, and icons to represent information and statistics about a subject in a very visual way. This aids readers in comparing and contrasting the same subjects in different parts of the world. Each spread explores one subject in-depth, such as how countries are governed around the globe, who has the highest obesity rates, how urbanization rates affect the environment, and how the life expectancy in a country is linked to its sanitation levels.
