Another beautiful blockbuster from Tufte,
This review is from: Visual Explanations: Images and Quantities, Evidence and Narrative (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!
