Just look at the excerpt below and notice how much they manage to fit in without overwhelming the reader: As you can see, the artwork is clear, concise, and well paced while the writing is simultaneously dense and easily navigable. Also, interspersed in all of this history is some science in the form of the chemistry behind how beer is made:
