What is the true human cost of the war in Afghanistan? What are the real effects of the austerity measures? And how did the London riots spread so quickly? Facts are Sacred, the award-winning datablog, publishes and analyses seemingly benign data -- released under the auspices of transparency -- to bring its readers astonishing revelations about the way we live now. It reveals how data has changed our world and what we can learn from it. Now, the most telling findings from the blog are brought together to give us the facts and figures behind the headlines, beautifully illustrated with extensive data visualisations.

. . . an irreplaceable and irresistible living asset for the data journalist. Unique on the web and a central watering-hole for data researchers, wranglers and visualisers. DAVID McCANDLESS
