5.0 out of 5 stars Exhaustive!!!!!, 21 July 2013

This review is from: SHOW ME THE NUMBERS (Hardcover)
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.

The book was of excellent quality and I received it in time. Nothing particular to complain about. So why does the browser keep telling me I need to write more words?
