I think this book is pretty good. Some of his principles i have heard before from Tufte for example. I will try to incorporate some of his ideas into my dashboard, but some I will probably ignore (hey, I like bright colors).

53.0% "I like his idea of everything on one screen and no scrolling, but allowing the user to scroll allows for bigger graphics with easy to read detail. I like the gauge example for good and bad….more information is better ;) I like his idea of tying the same metric indifferent graphs by using the same color….how easy!"
