9780140056181: The Book of Comparisons

FOREWORD: "Comparisons" is an exciting visual guide to how man measures - and measures up to - his universe. By making comparisons between like and like and between like and unlike we can evaluate the different properties of the known world. Most readers are familiar with the excellent "Guinness Book of Records," which has for many years recorded the extremes of the human and physical worlds. "Comparisons' displays and relates not only extremes, but also presents what we encounter in everyday experience. To make this wealth of information easier to understand and remember, the artists and editors have created hundreds of illustrations and diagrams, all accompanied by concise, explanatory captions. This technique makes it possible to see at a glance and to appreciate fully comparisons that are not readily grasped from photographs or prose alone.
