“With a growing interest in the field of data visualisation, Stephanie Evergreen's book on presenting data effectively can be described as a timely entry into the topic for the evaluation field....[she] immediately makes her position and passion for data presentation clear with strong words to convince the reader of its importance...her first book is an accessible and engaging read for the new evaluator, or even for the more established evaluator looking to finesse the way they present data in reports and presentations."
(Alicia McCoy, Evaluation Journal of Australasia)
