From the Back Cover
Praise for THE BIG BOOK OF DASHBOARDS
"The Big Book of Dashboards provides a solid treatment of the fundamentals of data visualization, but the numerous examples are what set this book apart. The comments from the authors after each chapter remind the reader that creating influential dashboards is both a science and an art. This book will spend more time on my desk than on my shelfincredibly practical."
Jeffrey Camm, Inmar Presidential Chair, Associate Dean of Business Analytics, Wake Forest School of Business
"Some books about visualization focus on principles and guidelines, but they don't devote enough pages to explain how to apply them to the design of complex, multi-section displays, like business dashboards. This book is the opposite of that. While the book contains an introduction to data visualization fundamentals, it is the numerous examples of real dashboards that sets it apart. If you've ever found yourself stuck when creating a dashboard, you will likely find a solution here."
Alberto Cairo, author of The Truthful Art: Data, Charts, and Maps for Communication
"This book is full of beautiful dashboards along with uber-practical advice from three authors with many years of experience. It is a treasure chest for hardcore data-viz geeks and business leaders needing to get smart on how to present data to optimize operations."
J.D. Whitlock, VP, Enterprise Intelligence, Mercy Health
"This book provides you with a vast array of real-world dashboards, and shares the thoughts and considerations that have gone into each example. The authors even provide a full explanation that acts as a user guide. Mix and match these ideas, and you'll find what you need to visualize your data."
Josh Tapley, Director of Data Visualization, Comcast Corporation
"The artful combination of technique and problem solving come together in The Big Book of Dashboards as the authors demonstrate powerful design principles using real world use cases. Apply these principles to your next dashboard and watch your data come alive."
Bruce Henry, Managing Partner, False Peak Ventures

If you are responsible for creating visualizations, particularly in Tableau, this book is a must-have. Consider it a paperback muse, since while it doesn't offer step-by-step instructions and may not include your exact use case, a casual flip through the pages will give you ideas for views you'd never have thought of otherwise. A great idea and great execution by some of the industry's sharpest minds. Well done!
