Brilliant Maps for Curious Minds

100 New Ways to See the World

By Ian Wright

A singular atlas of 100 infographic maps from thought-provoking to flat-out fun

Publisher's note: Brilliant Maps for Curious Minds was published in the UK under the title Brilliant Maps.

Which countries don’t have rivers? Which ones have North Korean embassies? Who drives on the “wrong” side of the road? How many national economies are bigger than California’s? And where can you still find lions in the wild? You’ll learn answers to these questions and many more in Brilliant Maps for Curious Minds. This one-of-a-kind atlas is packed with eye-opening analysis (Which nations have had female leaders?), whimsical insight (Where can’t you find a McDonald’s?), and surprising connections that illuminate the contours of culture, history, and politics.

Each of these 100 maps will change the way you see the world—and your place in it.
