"Life in Five Seconds: Over 200 Stories For Those With No Time to Waste," put together by the design and advertising firm H-57, came out earlier this month.

It is a series of pictographs that takes on over 200 important events, inventions great lives, and cultural icons and condenses them to the essential moments. In other words, it's hilarious.

We took an excerpt of some of the book-themed infographics that the book offered. Enjoy!

  • "The Metamorphosis" by Kafka
  • "Moby-Dick" by Herman Melville
  • "The Odyssey" by Homer
