The Biographic series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world's greatest thinkers and creatives. It takes the 50 defining facts, dates, thoughts, habits and achievements of each subject, and uses infographics to convey all of them in vivid snapshots. Each Biographic title is designed to be as entertaining as it is informative. Timelines not only pinpoint significant dates, but set them in the context and culture of their times. Dynamic maps locate biographical events alongside other points of interest. Character traits are illuminated by visual comparisons. Most people know that Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) was a towering figure of American literature, a Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winner and author of novels including The Sun Also Rises and The Old Man and the Sea. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he was an ambulance driver in the First World War and suffered 227 shrapnel wounds; that he wrote 47 different endings to his second novel A Farewell to Arms; that he hunted great white sharks and German U-boats with a machine gun; and that he survived 2 plane crashes in 48 hours. Biographic: Hemingway presents an instant impression of his life, work and legacy, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the writer behind the words.
