Holiday Conversation Starters

I’ve posted before about my love of David McCandless’s blog, Information is Beautiful.  So, I was enamored to receive his book, “Knowledge is Beautiful” as an early Christmas present. I can’t say enough about the information graphically presented throughout the book– all the interesting facts, trends and statistics you’ve ever wanted to know or, better yet, not even known you’ve wanted to know! Since the holidays are a talking time, my gift to you this season is three of my personal favorites, designed to give you an easy topic with which to initiate and sustain any conversation.
