Editorial Reviews

Review

In a clear and effective manner, Andy Kirk provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of data and design that is well integrated into a practical visualization workflow. Data Visualization will do much to improve literacy in both areas―a must-read, especially if you are starting in the field. -- Isabel Meirelles Published On: 2016-04-20

Data visualization is much more than just data and visuals. Andy understands that successful visualizations emerge from successful processes and myriad well-informed decisions. Getting all the parts right in this interdisciplinary field is a huge challenge; every student and practitioner of data visualisation will benefit from absorbing the vast wisdom captured in this book. -- Scott Murray Published On: 2016-04-20

Andy Kirk has managed to squeeze a lifetime of expertise on visualising data and telling stories using interactives into one easy-to-follow and beautifully illustrated book. For students and designers interested in creating interactive and stunningly crafted data visualisations this is a must read.

-- Tom Felle Published On: 2016-05-13

With presentation and interpretation of data central to so much today, this guide is essential reading for almost everyone! -- Richard Smedley

The book is comprehensive and practical, taking the reader one step at a time through the process of visualising data, from how to manage the initial thinking process to how and why to choose particular colours and compose the design. -- Helen Kara
