Book Overview

From the Preface:

For centuries, atlases depicted what people could see: roads, rivers, mountains. Today, we need graphics to reveal the invisible patterns that shape our lives. Atlas of the Invisible is an ode to the unseen, to a world of information that cannot be conveyed through text or numbers alone.

Praise for Where the Animals Go:

A striking example of how innovative technology can be used to increase our understanding of the natural world.
--Alan Smith, Financial Times

An enthralling volume, downright gorgeous in its illustrations and text.
--Barbara J. King, NPR

Beautiful as well as inspiring.
--Dr. Jane Goodall

A combination of the best in science and exposition, and a joy to study cover to cover.
--E. O. Wilson

   Few Maps, Many Graphics
Graphics and maps are mostly interesting but a few are pretty dumb. It is also mostly graphic, not a lot of maps.

   An Incredible Resource!
I will work with future scientists and Science - teachers. This work is simply the best example I ever seen of how we can share data in ways that communicate deeply what we thought we knew.

   Delivers as Promised
I had heard that this was a special book, unlike any other atlas in content and execution. The authors'goal is to make dense data sets tell their stories by providing proportionality and time elapsed to this information. It isn 't dry stuff. By presenting data about such things as trafficked humans over the period of transatlantic slavery, where they came from and where they went, I learned some important truths not often understood, such as that Brazil received more Africans into slavery than any other destination. Other presentations include an amount of light in the night sky over time to present the impact of war in Syria, effects of human migration, effects of climate change and many other topics. At Christmas, I gave a copy to my inquisitive 11-year-old grandson, and it provided hours of family discussion.
