The difference is in the details. After all, what distinguishes a clementine from a mandarin orange, an iris from a pupil, the sea from the ocean, a bee from a wasp, and the Netherlands from Holland? Sometimes, the delineations are obvious. More often than not, what sets two seemingly similar things apart is overlooked and under-explained. Illumination is here: This content-rich book breaks down the distinctions between an impressive collection of pairs - from animals to food to geography, fashion, and more -offering enlightening trivia, amusing tidbits, and unforgettable facts in a highly browsable format. Dip in and out to feed your mind, or delve into the details and stay awhile. With a bold, graphic art style and accessible yet content-rich text, this smart miscellany will enrich and delight curious minds (or is it brains?!).
