Description


The world's most mind-boggling questions, answered through 200 brilliantly clever and addictive infographics.

What's the secret to living past a hundred? What's going on in China? Are we running out of sand? And how many chickens are there?

In An Answer to Everything, 200 of the world's most mind-boggling questions are explained by way of brilliantly clever and addictive infographics. Some will make you giggle, others hit like a sucker punch, and then there are the slow burners, where you can geek out over a data set for hours.

Authored by the team behind Delayed Gratification, the world's best slow journalism magazine, these deeply researched infographics are a compelling and darkly funny way to see the world around us with new eyes.
