Special Libraries Association News Division Recommended
by Russell Ash and Richard Bonson, hardcover (DK Publishing,
"Use this visual guide to help turn statistics into
pictures: this surveys sizes, heights, speeds, and numbers
using a fine cross-comparison visual approach which
encourages kids to think about the realities of numbers.
From animals to human creations, this is an unusual,
involving oversized creation." --Midwest Book Review. "At
last, a book that gives statistics a good name! This visual
delight features gatefold artworks revealing what's big,
bigger, and biggest (and fast, faster and fastest!)."
