Very helpful while learning to use sci2 11 Jun. 2014
By M. Blake - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book to help explain details of manipulating network visualizations and this book was very clear and has a lot of examples. I had also started using Sci2 and this book focuses on that toolset specifically so was very useful. However if someone is looking for a book more generally about visualization and they are NOT using Sci2, this book might be frustrating because it is so focused on that tool specifically.

A worthy addition to the literature about information visualization, design, and graphics 10 Feb. 2014
By Alberto Cairo Touriqo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
FULL DISCLOSURE: I received an advanced copy of this book. I wrote a blurb for it, which I'm copying below:

"In the world of visualization and information graphics, the bibliography about thematic maps and statistical graphs is becoming abundant, little by little. However, studies of how to design network diagrams and conceptual maps are rare, and usually available only through scientific publications. Katy Börner and David Polley's book is the first serious attempt at offering a theoretical and practical introduction to this discipline, aimed not just at specialists, but at any reader, regardless of her or his background. I foresee that it'll become the textbook of choice for many instructors."

Don't expect an introduction to the main principles of information design. I believe that the authors assume that whoever is reading this book will come to it with some previous exposure to the basics of the field. Instead, Visual Insights is much more focused on conceptual maps, thematic cartography, and network visualizations, which is great, as there are not many books out there that cover those. Besides being readable, by the way, the book is also beautiful to look at.
Highly recommended for communications scholars 14 Sept. 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a gorgeous book, and it represents truly breakthrough work that is changing how people look at and understand information. It is probably best for a scholar or librarian - it is not a book for the average reader.

Comprehensive introduction to Visualisation 15 Feb. 2014
By cramp10 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Companion to an Information Visualisation MOOC, [...] ... but this book is good enough to stand on its own.

Great full color visualisations in the book. Almost like a coffee table book for people who are into information visualisation.
