4.0 out of 5 stars a catalogue of charts, 20 Sept. 2002
This review is from: Information Graphics: A Comprehensive Illustrated Reference (Paperback)
This is a train spotters approach to recognising every conceivable way of charting data - the detail is painstaking, though not painful.
Be clear, however - this is a book that almost exclusively focuses on visualising quantitative information - there's no 'signage' type concepts here, and there isn't even any colour, which is actually a bonus as colour would only introduce even more distraction. You will never have believed how many different ways you can chart a string of data points until you leaf through this tome.
The book, in attempting to catalogue charting from so many different dimensions, ends up repeating itself a lot - it could have been a third of its size and still conveyed the same volume of information.
It's a book that's great to flick through when you're looking for inspiration to show that piece of boring statistics in a more engaging form.
