"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I've read other books by Mr. Few, and his ideas are must-know ideas. You should buy this book NOW and read it cover-to-cover if you've not read his other similar works (or are not schooled in the similar ideas of Mr. Tufte). However, if you've read his prior work in this area, you probably have internalized the majority of this book as well and won't find significant new concepts in this edition.
One note: based on the cover (an iPhone with a dashboard) I was excited to order this book on pre-order. I assumed the implication was that a significant portion of the book might be covering new form factors. In reality most of the book covers traditional full-sized PC dashboard design principles as prior books do. There are a few pages that discuss mobile device design, but mostly covering Mr. Few's opinions on dark vs. light backgrounds, but not much consideration specifically about mobile form factor design as I was hoping.
Ovreall, great book, and if your work involves BI data visualization it's an important reference for your bookshelf. But if you already have several books by Few and/or Tufte you could skip this one.
