Terrible. The wrap on the smaller values at the bottom make it hard to compare the relative sizes visually. Looking up a country by color- so many shades and the data color is on a different background than the legend color. The difference in value between the white and the grey background is bigger than the difference between some of the data colors.
It’s a interesting visual pattern but useless as data. Good example of what not to do.
