From Scientific American
This book will be particularly useful to people doing desktop publishing, will help introduce general readers to the language of graphic designers, and can be used as a guidebook for finding the best way to present graphic information. Recommended for all levels.
From The New Yorker
The breadth and depth of entries, examples, and cross-references are almost overwhelming. The book's 448 pages pack in more than 850 entries and nearly 4,000 illustrations covering everything from mundane pie charts to complex visualization techniques for data analysis and business operations. 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. I am glad to add Information Graphics to my technical communications library. I recommend that you add it also.

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.
