Review:

“Dangerous…to have on your desk if you have other work to get done….[T]he visuals will draw you in, and the sharpness of the questions some of them attempt to answer—and the efficiency with which they can communicate complex comparisons in a single page—will keep you hooked.” (Omnivoracious)

“For those drowning in the digital age’s information glut, Visual Miscellaneum, the new eye-popping book of infographics …makes the perfect antidote. … By turns alarming and humorous in its revelations, it’s a timely, if meandering, look at the state of our world.” (Coolhunting.com)

“...like a Harper’s Index that’s sprung to life....For a book that’s as much about the online universe as it is a product of it, The Visual Miscellaneum is surprisingly timeless....The Visual Miscellaneum is not only required reading, but a book that rewards any number of re-reads.” (EyeWeekly.com)
