Synopsis

Which James Bond drinks the most martinis? What do Satanists really believe? How do hurricanes get their names? Why are bees disappearing? Is chocolate healthy? ...Go Figure has the answers. Bringing together the very best from the clever people at The Economist, Go Figure explains the mind-boggling, the peculiar and the profound, things you might always have quietly wondered about and yet more you didn't know you didn't know. Figure out why so many Koreans are called Kim, how bitcoin mining works, why eating insects makes sense and how to get ahead under a dictator - a treat for the knowing, the uninitiated and the downright curious.
