That's the only drawback. We have trouble relating to some of these statistics because they're British or generally Eurocentric. On the other hand, all the adjectives on the cover are true. There are many eyebrow-raising facts, of both the pleasant and not-so-pleasant sort, like the humbling kind. Try the percent of people worldwide who have never made a telephone call, or the percent of people in India who have never heard of the USA.

This is a great book for anyone. As a math teacher, I leave the numbers blank and ask my students what they think. The only one for which they were generally dead on was the number of Americans who are injured by shopping carts per hour. Makes for some interesting discussion, and definitely some perspective. Could there possibly be an American version in the works? If so, the 5th star for the rating is on its way!

Great Coffee Table or Bathroom book. You don't need to read it all at once.

I bought this book while trying to buy another book called Numbers. When I saw my error, I thought it might be fine as I like these types of numbers. But, at 96 pages, thin, not much per page, I returned it even though I lost money doing it. Pretty weak. The Harper's Index from Harper's Bazaar magazine gives you about as much per issue. And has a book. And is more compelling generally. Not my vote for a great use of money, though a few nice number twists are in here.
