I didn't know one could write 340 pages about data visualisation, without using too much graphs throughout the book. Although the book contains a lot of fluff, it does a pretty decent job in structuring the data visualisation process and the types of visualisations. Especially the mini-encyclopedia in the middle is pretty useful for reference purposes. Nevertheless, and I repeat, a lot of text for something that could be summerized on a dozen of pages.

There is a lot of good information in here but I think Storytelling With Data is a more easily digestible.

Great overview of what makes successful data visualizations work. Love the depth and nuance! Especially the process and principles should be very helpful for beginners.

Impressive Organization and Information.

Among all the books I have read regarding Infographics and data presentation/design, this one provides the best mix of details and general overview.; not too much, not too little. I highly recommend.
