Product description


"Stephen Few is the master of creating simplicity and meaning through the clear visualization of data. "Show Me the Numbers" should be required reading for every businessperson, researcher, student, and teacher. A contemporary classic!" --Garr Reynolds, author, "Presentation Zen" and "The Naked Presenter"

"Not just 'a' book on statistical graphics, it is 'the' book on statistical graphics. No other book has influenced my own view on the visual presentation of quantitative evidence as much as this. A true masterpiece." --Alberto Cairo, author, "The Functional Art"

"If you are looking for practical, easy-to-follow guidelines for presenting numerical data, this is the best book there is. Stephen Few's examples are elegant, and his advice is right on the money." --Colin Ware, professor, University of New Hampshire, and author, " Information Visualization: Perception for Design"

"A must-read for anyone developing reports or dashboards." --Cindi Howson, founder, BI Scorecard, and author, "Successful Business Intelligence: Secrets to Making BI a Killer App"

"With calm clarity and well-crafted examples, Stephen Few explains how to make comprehensible and even compelling tables and graphs. In a world with petabytes of data, compact informative tables and graphs are more important than ever. Their quality is not measured in byte counts, but in insights, deep understandings, and confident decisions. "Show Me the Numbers" will raise expectations and guide data hackers to become information Rembrandts." --Ben Shneiderman, professor, University of Maryland, and coauthor, "Readings in Information Visualization: Using Vision to Think"

"Each concept builds upon the previous in a logical and easy-to-follow sequence, leading the reader steadily through the material, eager to see what is on the next page. In my work with health-care professionals, I list "Show Me the Numbers" as a must-have for my clients' reference libraries." --Katherine S. Rowell, founder, Katherine S. Rowell & Associates

"With this second edition, "Show Me the Numbers" has been transformed from a practical, engaging, and trustworthy guide for displaying numbers into the most comprehensive reference available for anyone who seeks to present data in enlightening ways, even to those with numberphobia." --Stacey Barr, performance measure specialist
