My knowledge of art, design, and how to craft compelling stories pales in comparison to my technical knowledge. As a data scientist, I found the lessons in this book invaluable. No longer shall I waste endless hours toying /testing graph layouts, I now have a systematic approach to communicate results.

It can absolutely serve as a stand-alone book, which is filled with so many tips yet highly effective to make graphs clearer to general audience. Why makes graphs to sap readers' brain power, if it can be made simpler?

I can understand why some colleges use this as infographics textbook/workbook. Solid framework illustrate ed with good examples and reinforced with open ended exercises. One takeaway that's ingrained with me after working through the book: very often, you can actually achieve much more with much less! ...more
