I have never read a book of this size in one sitting. Frankly, I started a bit slow but then found myself not being able to put the book down. Four hours later! I have read the entire book.

This is great. The language is simple, clear and crisp. The explanations make total sense. To make a subject such as tables and graphs interesting is difficult at the best of times but Mr Few has done it. I have learnt a hell of a lot such as geospatial considerations, box plots (never heard of them before), perception of visual display etc etc etc.

Normally, I consider a book great if I learn just one thing from it but I have learnt such a lot from this book. To supplement this, I suggest that one also reads 'How to make an impact' by Jon Moon.

This book begins at the principles of perception and guides you towards the goal of presenting the valuable meaningful information that's hidden within bulks of data along a path of understanding. For me as information professional at a government agency this book helps to reach the next level of professional performance.

This book is a great source of a practical knowledge for everyone who designs information. I'm a UX designer and this book help me prepare better tables and graphs, not only draw nice ones but also think about information in analytical way.

Superb book that gives practical, sensible advice instead of unusual and pretty charts for unusual cases. Is up-to-date and relevant to modern tools and practices. Used this as the basis for training at my work.

Fanastic book... if its your thing or a job, to visually present data. It is nicely printed with solid, grey hardcover.
