5.0 out of 5 stars Error free, and beautiful indeed, 21 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Information is Beautiful (Hardcover)
I wanted this book from the day I read about it, but waited until the printing errors were sorted out. Amazon haven't really highlighted the publishers note that says this is now on to the third reprint, and is therefore error free. So I now have a copy. And it was worth the 6 month wait.

This really is beautiful. The way some of the figures are presented is brilliantly original, and really fires the imagination for how information could be better presented. And I was surprised at some practical pages as well - eg salad dressing recipes, with quantities represented visually.

This is one of those books that will sit in the book case and be dipped into every now and again for inspiration. Enjoy it.

There are in fact some mistakes in this book, which seem to me to be politically motivated.
