An Answer For Everything

What’s the best book ever written? What would happen if we all stopped eating meat? What’s the secret to living past 110? And what actually is the best thing since sliced bread?

In An Answer For Everything, 200 of the world’s most intriguing questions are settled once and for all through beautiful and brilliant infographics. The results will leave you shocked, informed and thoroughly entertained. Created by the team behind the award-winning Delayed Gratification magazine, these compelling, darkly funny data visualisations will change the way you think about… everything.

Includes questions such as:

  • War. What is it good for?
  • Are there plenty more fish in the sea?
  • How can we save the planet?
  • Who’s the greatest athlete ever?
  • Will we be hit by a giant asteroid?

Each copy of the book purchased through the shop comes with a beautiful bookplate signed by all three authors, which you can stick in to the copy if you choose

“Fresh, fascinating, and fun – a visual and verbal treat” – Ian Hislop, Private Eye

“A fabulous compendium of a thousand new things you didn’t know you didn’t know. And it looks very nice too.” Andrew Hunter Murray, No Such Thing As A Fish
