If, instead, we were to say that the whale's tongue weighs the same as a single African elephant, and that the entire whale tips the scales at the equivalent of 25 elephants, then you might suddenly grasp its magnitude. Journalists have long recognized this phenomenon, which is why they describe rainforest being destroyed in areas the size of Wyoming or, indeed, Wales. How Many Molehills in a Mountain? reveals the world through visual equivalents - so that size, speed and mass make instant sense. You will discover how many times higher than Monsieur Eiffel is the Eiffel Tower, and how many Eiffel Towers there are in a Mount Everest. Plus how many grandfathers take you back to the Jurassic period.
