Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is an elegant volume illustrated with appealing graphic images that, taken together with the text, provide a user's manual to ‘dataviz.’ Good Charts provides an antidote for “death by PowerPoint,” but it also makes a powerful argument for the systematic use, study, and application of these new, technology-driven, visual forms of communication…comprehensive and attractive introduction to the subject. Berinato perhaps understates this accomplishment with the rather quaint title of the text. He’s accomplished much more than that!” — CHOICE, the publication of the American Library Association

“…it may just be the design book of the year.” — CO.DESIGN (Fast Company)

“It isn’t often that a book comes out and I say “I wish I’d written that book.” But if I could have double-clicked on the data section of slide:ology and had a book pop out, Good Charts would be the book!” — Nancy Duarte, LinkedIn Pulse

“Berinato takes dataviz back to the basics by providing information about how we see...Berinato shows hundreds of visual examples that help chart creators focus on the information they need to include and how to effectively present it.” — Hartford Business Journal

ADVANCE PRAISE for Good Charts:

Tim Brown, President and CEO, IDEO; author, Change by Design
“If you wish to be fluent in the modern world of data, then visualization is an essential language to be learned. Good Charts offers an in-depth approach to using that language to communicate clearly and effectively.”

Alex “Sandy” Pentland, cocreator, MIT Media Lab; author, Social Physics
“Data visualization isn’t a secret art, but a skill you can learn. In Good Charts, Scott Berinato demonstrates this, impressively distilling the history and mechanics of dataviz into a clear and powerful argument about the importance of understanding and making good charts in your own work. A must-have manual in today's workplace.”

Jack Parmer, CEO, Plotly—
“Static and busy Excel charts are a nonstarter in today's workforce. In this enlightening yet deeply practical book, Scott Berinato highlights the growing importance of data visualization literacy for a new generation of business intelligence. Written in an accessible style, Good Charts reveals new insights and best practices that will improve your understanding of visual data and help you create better charts yourself.”

Leland Wilkinson, Vice President, Statistics, Tableau Software—
“Berinato is not afraid to confront myths and conventional wisdom peddled by some popular visualization gurus. At the same time, he provides needed history and introduces us to some of the best thinkers in the field. Most important, he gives us clear guidelines for producing effective displays. This eloquent book should be the entry point for anyone wanting to learn about data visualization.”

Steve J. Martin, coauthor, Yes! 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Persuasive
“In today’s information-overloaded, disruptive, and culturally diverse world, the new language of business and commerce is visual. In this smart, timely, and exceptionally lucid book, Scott Berinato shows how to create meaningful and persuasive visuals that cut through the noise and connect with your target audience. An essential guide no matter what business you’re in.”
