I admit it. I have to count out zeroes to figure out billions and trillions, even in a book where they’re written in words below for me.
This does not make such a book any less cool, though, since it reminds my brain of how huge and amazing the world really is, kind of like the information in the book. It’s perfect for lovers of numbers and math and people who like making connections between the big-ness of the world and the smallness of an individual and all of the things that tie us together.
The art is also vibrant and diverse and detailed when it needs to be and simple when that works better. There won’t be only one of me reading it, though. I might have to share it with a few people.
