Reviews

'Super-stylish miscellany of facts and figures in a large-format hardback. Topics include the Periodic Table, tides, clouds and the Fibonacci sequence.' The Bookseller

'Every two pages offers something different, and readers can dip in and out as they see fit. The clean, clear lines of the illustrations provide a perfect balance to the short blocks of text.' The Irish Times
