We find ourselves in the era of big data, a time when information moves faster than ever, and infographics provide us with quick, often influential bursts of insight—into the environment, politics, social issues, health, sports, arts and culture, and more. The Best American Infographics captures the finest examples, from the past year, of this mesmerizing new way of seeing and understanding our world. The Best American Infographics 2015 is the third volume in the series, and a New England Independent Booksellers Association bestseller. The guest introducer is Maria Popova, the creative force behind the wondrous Brainpickings.org, which receives over 1.2 million visitors a month.
