5.0 out of 5 stars Gloriously informative 1 Feb 2009
Format:Hardcover
Tufte is pure genius. I own pretty much all of his work. The book is strewn with terrific stories and illustrations about the use of data and how to tell the best stories. For anyone working as an analyst or in a similar capacity which involves having to explain information to others, this book (and its companions) is truly invaluable. Don't be put off by the title, this is book you can show to your Granny and she'd be fascinated by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another beautiful blockbuster from Tufte 1 Sep 2000
By Matthew Leitch VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
This is another book that beautifully conveys some powerful advice. I found the detailed case studies of an epidemic in old London, and the Challenger disaster were particularly persuasive and useful.
Applied to management information, these arguments make the point that presentation of information can make the difference between worthless reports and illuminating reports.
Since some information systems are very costly to implement, it makes sense to ensure the final presentation justifies the investment, instead of wasting it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good examples nicely embedded in the text 27 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Very good illustrations, comfortable colours, fonts, layout and well-designed book in itself. It was very entertaining as well as providing useful ideas on graphic design. It is a great pleasure to read a book like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars I would recommend all three books! 13 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very good book for anyone who does presentations and reports in their work.
Since it's the third book of Edward Tufte I can greatly recommend the previous 2 as well.

To keep in mind, especialy with the previous books, is that Tufte has a large focus on the use of graphs and visualisations as to help with analysis and give a technically good representation of your information and data.

If your looking to know more about how to sell or pitch with your presentations you might want to look for something else as a complement.

Cheers

By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a inspiring and beautiful book which opened up new horizons for me,sharpened my thinking and presentation and made me see information in a completely different light. A book where art and science meet. If only I had been taught by Professor Tufte!
