Review: Visual Explanations: Images and Quantities, Evidence and Narrative

User Review  - Joe - Goodreads

More of a graphics design book than a data visualization book like Visual Display of Quantitative Information. It didn't relate to my interests as much, but it's still a gorgeous book and an interesting read. Read full review
