about

A singular atlas of 100 infographic maps, each one revealing something about the world that you've never thought of before

Which nations have North Korean embassies? How many countries have bigger economies than California? Who drives on the "wrong" side of the road? And where can you find lions in the wild? In Brilliant Maps for Curious Minds, you'll learn all this and much more. One hundred visually arresting maps strike a balance between sobering analysis (number of executions by state) and whimsical insight (the countries of the world where there aren't any McDonald's).

Thought-provoking and flat-out fun, this one-of-a-kind atlas-compiled by the editor of the popular Brilliant Maps website-makes surprising connections that illuminate the contours of culture, history, and politics. Brilliant Maps for Curious Minds will change the way you see the world-and your place in it.
