Riveting ideas on presenting better information design. Few would disagree: Life in the information age can be overwhelming. Through computers, the Internet, the media, and even our daily newspapers, we are awash in a seemingly endless stream of charts, maps, infographics, diagrams, and data. "Visual Explanations," the latest book by Edward R. Tufte, a Yale design professor, is a navigational guide through this turbulent sea of information. The book is an essential reference for anyone involved in graphic, Web, or multimedia design, as well as for educators and lecturers who use graphics in presentations or classes.

Review: Visual Explanations: Images and Quantities, Evidence and Narrative

User Review  - Joe - Goodreads

More of a graphics design book than a data visualization book like Visual Display of Quantitative Information. It didn't relate to my interests as much, but it's still a gorgeous book and an interesting read. Read full review
