Awesome Coffee Table Book

5 Nov

This is a nice follow up to my Infographic post from a few days ago. Listomania is basically coolinfographics.com in book form.

Organized into eight chapters, Listomania covers questions of human behavior, trivia facts about geography (past and present), etymology, mythology, ancient and recent history, as well as pop culture. Some of the lists included are:

• 10 Tiny Terrors: a list of the ten most petite world leaders (yes, some were shorter than Napoleon!)

• 43 Famous People Who Were Adopted (e.g. Steve Jobs, Debbie Harry, Mark Twain, Alexander the Great)

• 15 Movies Featuring Giant Rabbits

• 10 Top Cheese Eating Countries( note correspondence to the top ten happiest countries)

• 8 Dastardly Ponzi Schemes

• 38 Ancient Cities (That People Still Live In)

• 28 Prehistoric Creatures Named for Famous People or Cool Things (e.g. Dracorex Hogwartsia, Attenborosaurus, and Psephorus Terrypratchetti)

Illustrated in full color with playful images, graphs, charts, captions, and photographs, this colorful book brings a new face to trivia and is sure to wow readers, surprise them, and make them laugh from cover to cover. Listomania functions as a practical information resource as well as a fun and quirky gift for readers of any age.

Yep, my coffee table needs this asap.

Infographic Crazy

Be honest. If you’re thinking about reading something, and you see that it is accompanied by a groovy little infographic, you’re gonna check it out. Well at least the infographic anyway. Infographics are huge on the web. Why? They give lots of info, and they give it to yah fast and hard…

I’ve found a treasure trove of infographics about everything from Horror Movies to Which New Jersey Streets Are the Most Deadly. Here are some of my favs, but I check back often for both a good laugh and a daily dose of useless trivia.
