Understanding USA

This is the title of a book that tries to explain on an infographic way the main statistical data of the northamerican country. Edited by Richard Saul Wurman. Some of the contributors are considered the biggest thoerics of infographics and infovis, as Nigel Holmes, MIchael Bierut and others, with results sometimes surprinsing, and not for good.
This book can be visualizated page by page on the web (UnderstandingUSA.com), and downloaded as PDF, and this is to be grateful.
Data are most of the times highly interesting, the way of presenting them is, sometimes, matter of discussion. Anyway, the different ideas about visual presentation and organization is always worthy to have a look.
