Full description for Life in Five Seconds
In today's caffeine-charged, jet-fuelled, celebrity-a-minute world, who actually has the time to learn a thing or two? C'mon, let's face it, life's too bloody short. What you need is instant knowledge. Told in ingenious pictograms that are witty, provocative and to the point, Life in Five Seconds takes over 200 important events, inventions, great lives, wonders of the natural world and cultural icons that you really need to know about, and then - hey presto! - cuts away all the useless details. The result is a hilarious visual snapshot that puts all of life into context. You'll laugh out loud as you identify everything from Satan to Santa Claus; Beethoven to Banksy; the Great Wall of China to the Berlin Wall; Elvis, Ikea, videogames and everything in-between. This is the perfect book for anyone with a sense of humour...and a short attention span.
