Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Tufte's book includes a range of beautiful examples of information visualisation, but also wanders off in places in a slightly self-indulgent way, and uses a lot of space to cover some of the examples (Tufte self-published the book, I believe, which might explain this).

In the same way as "The Design of Everyday Things" causes you to look at door handles in a new light, you never look at a chart or diagram in quite the same way after reading one of Tufte's books; bad design will leap out at you once you've seen examples of good design.

He also includes the obligatory powerpoint-bashing, but in good humour.

I think this book is fantastic. If you're in the business of writing reports and giving presentations, this book provides valuable lessons of how it should be done. I work in science and have benefited tremendously from the wisdom given in this book.

This is a remarkabel work, both beautiful and full of insight. A very rewarding, although not particularily easy read. Not everybody will find it useful as a practical guide, but everyone should be able to learn something out of it.

Super beautiful book - and that's more or less that. No practical guides - on a dark day waste of money.
