"This is an excellent reference for those wishing to describe data using graphs (of any nature)...I can imagine many applied statisticians, engineers, people from economy and/or newspapers, etc., for whom this reference could be an important addition to the library."-- Math
"An encyclopedia of graphical techniques, including the many tools arising from modern data analysis. A great resource." --Chance, a publication of the American Statistical Association
"The breadth and depth of entries, examples, and cross references are almost overwhelming. Readers can explore subjects to the depth necessary--it's all there ... The writing is straightforward and precise without being overly technical and presupposes no special knowledge of graphics or mathematics." --Journal of the Society for Technical Communication

It's all black and white, and omits some of the more recent developments (no Heat Maps, Tree Maps, Sparklines).However it's a serious professional reference that I have personally found useful
Could use an update
Information Graphics: A Comprehensive Illustrated Reference changed that. With this handy reference, which is never far from my keyboard, I have a 450-page catalog of ideas and guidance. What is remarkable is that in the 450 pages are 4,000 illustrations (nearly 10 per page). This book has allowed me to measurably improve the quality of my proposals and deliverables by picking the best possible way to convey information.
Don't let the fact that I am in the computer consulting industry deter you from buying this book - if you are in business, graphic arts, advertising and marketing or just about any other profession that uses data this book will be worth its weight in gold.
