Criss-crossing the British Isles with a haul of statistics, charts and equations, Britain by Numbers ascertains precise figures for all manner of activities and situations that prove enlightening and amusing in equal measure. Sumptuously designed with striking colour-coding and graphics, Newman’s marvellously eccentric exercise is a singular delight.
A beautiful, compelling and eye-opening guide to the way we live in Britain today.
How much more do we drink than we should? Why do immigrants come here? How have house prices changed in the past decade? What do we spend our money on?
Britain by Numbers answers all these questions and more, vividly bringing our nation to life in new and unexpected ways by showing who lives here, where we work, who we marry, what crimes we commit and much else besides.
Beautifully designed and illustrated throughout, it takes the reader on a fascinating journey up and down the land, enriching their understanding of a complex - and contradictory - country.
