Numbers Don’t lie by Vaclav Smil

This is an eclectic book, with topics ranging from people, populations, and countries, through to energy use, technical innovation, and the machines and devices that define our modern civilization. For good measure, it closes with some factual perspectives on our food supply and eating choices, and on the state and degradation of our environment. Each chapter is just a couple pages long and covers one of the 71 facts mentioned in the chapter title.
