Abstract:

"This visually exciting book takes a unique look at our globe from the perspective of art, culture, and sports. 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 what the relationship is between fashion producers and consumers, who the most-read authors are around the world, how a country's education rates compare to their amount of Nobel Prize laureates, and which foods and drinks are most popular in different cultures"--Provided by publisher.
