A few more great concepts from Tutfe, but some re-hashing of previous info and in high-and-mighty tone. Examples include ones dealing with statistics, instructions and more. Read full review

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
