Each chapter builds upon the knowledge learnt in the previous chapters to demonstrate how to create simple to more complex and more interactive data visualisations. There are many ways to create visualisations using D3, but the book explores simple but powerful methods to create visualisations and to add interactivity. The earlier chapters create simple elements, and then go on to create bar charts with all the elements you would expect including bars, labels, scales, axes, and colours.Read more ›
How can you have a data visualisation book in kindle format where non of the images display?
I would like my money back until this issue is resolved?
This is very unfair on the author, who looks to have written an excellent book. Unfortunately I've given up trying to read it after a couple of chapters.
Bad: not for novices, won't show you everything that d3.js can do
I bought this book back in April 2013 from O'Reilly. I have both the print and e-book versions. I was surprised to see a low rating in Amazon reviews as I found this book really helpful in learning d3.js and that is what prompted me to write this review.
The sequence of chapters is very logical, and the author steps you through all the prerequisites of the technology very clearly. After that, when beginning to use d3 to visualise data, the style is tutorial, and by the end of the book you can do a lot. Maybe you can't do the precise thing that drew you to d3.js, but you'll be well down the road. He covers a lot of the theory of data-binding but I think there's more I haven't quite understood there.
There is humour to lighten the tone and some people dislike that, but I didn't find it too jarring.Read more ›
If you already know how to create a chart using D3, then there will be very little extra you will gain from reading this book.
