HASH(0x92010c6c) out of 5 stars Good Case Studies 6 Nov. 2013
By D. Kittrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While many of the core design hints can be found elsewhere the case studies set this apart from most other information visualization guidebooks. Well written and organized this will be useful to both graphic design and programmer staff looking to find new and useful ways to present information.

HASH(0x92013300) out of 5 stars really pretty good 27 Mar. 2014
By Geoffrey A Rhodes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
hard to write a book like this. the list of examples, trolled from a host of antique, old, recent, and contemporary works is quite impressive. Along the way there are some very intelligent references to semiotics, theory, and concepts of what the heck is data visualization-- though it doesn't get in too deep. It if has a flavor, it is an emphasis on the graphical... there are frequent sidebar comments as to the nature of line drawing and such for visualizing information. Not groundbreaking, but well put together and conceived.

HASH(0x92013240) out of 5 stars Great resource for anyone who is interested in information design. 18 Mar. 2014
By Leah Glennon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is well organized and easy to navigate, much like the infographics that are shown as examples in the book. The combination of well-written advice on organizing information visually and the wide variety of gorgeous infographics that are shown is very helpful when deciding how to visualize data.

HASH(0x9213278c) out of 5 stars Great book for inspiration 13 Dec. 2014
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this for inspiration for making visualizations. It is useful in this regard, but I thought editorial review was a bit over the top, which essentially makes a comparison to Tufte. While I don't think this book is on Tufte's level, it does have some of that feel and it's also Meirelles' first book to my knowledge. It's also very reasonably priced. I'll definitely look to Meirelles' future books for additional purchases.

Recap: perhaps a little oversold in the editorial review, but I think this is a great book to pick up to get inspiration.
