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.
As a mandatory textbook for a data course I was skeptical that a book on design was necessary. Boy was I wrong. After quickly reading it cover-to-cover I can definitively state this is a must have reference for anyone who utilizes dashboards. As someone who consumes dashboards regularly at work, the examples provided have served me well as I look to improve their usability.
The book construction is as well designed and thought out as the content. The images & text are crisp, the pages are soft and smooth. While the book wouldn't make sense on an e-ink kindle, it would be great to have a digital version available if only to have a searchable version when referencing after the first read.
