Some very interesting material, esp. on point and figure. But the graphs are, on an Ipad at least, hardly readable, and that is the name of the game when writing about charts. Some charts should have been at least one half page, not two or even four dinky charts on one half a page. The publisher was too concerned with costs, speaking of which, the book is pretty expensive for a download.
