A must read for anyone with an interest in presenting complex information in a useful form to an audience. Information architects, staticians, and writers will find his recommendations for presenting information useful and immediately applicable to virtually any discipline. Tufte reminds us all that information must serve a purpose beyond mere existance.  

Review: Envisioning Information

User Review  - This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For - Goodreads

While his first book was excellent, this one is pedantic naval gazing. It has no rhythm or flow and any instructive elements are buried and hidden under ponderous text and seemingly random flows from page to page. Read full review
