Good graphics, good subjects. Wish they provided more actual references when presenting numbers and facts, to make it more real.
Overall, a good reference book or just a book to browse on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Young adults will like it. Very similar to the "Book of Lists" that came out in the late 1980s that was just all lists of different things...Same idea. Recommended.
