DESCRIPTION :
The sun is 93,000,000 miles from earth, but who can conceive of that distance? Using scale, the sun becomes a grapefruit, the earth a grain of sand and the distance between the two a London bus.

Suddenly it fits in your head.

The Scale of Things is a book for those who want to go further than just information. It translates facts and figures into a new visual look, embracing popular science, space, economics, politics, geography, nature, and technology in an accessible and entertaining format. Fun and informative, it reaches into your mind and makes bits of it boggle as you picture and percolate the joys of life, science and understanding conveyed in a new way.

With a foreword by architect Richard Rogers, this quirky gift book will change the way you look at the world around you. From the deepest ocean trench to all the stars in our galaxy we go beyond distance to explore height and depth, molecular and atomic size, the scale of wealth, the speed of thought and plate tectonics, the power of bombs or dictators or the weight of the internet via T Rex's shoe size.

The human scale is 1:1, our point of reference. Let's go beyond
