Which, strange to tell, gave me an answer,
as here translated:
I am the poem of earth...

Knowledge is Beautiful
by David McCandless
recommended to Caroline by: Diane Librarian
Rate this book
Clear rating
The human mind is curious, often in a peck-around-the-bushes, magpie sort of way. This book of facts and statistics is perfect for magpies - packed with lots of delectable dollops of information. You have to admire the scope of McCandless's analyses ...more
