A timeless classic in how complex information should be presented graphically. The Strunk & White of visual design. Should occupy a place of honor--within arm's reach--of everyone attempting to understand or depict numerical data graphically. The design of the book is an exemplar of the principles it espouses: elegant typography and layout, and seamless integration of lucid text and perfectly chosen graphical examples. Very Highly Recommended.

The only thing I can find about this to complain about is the fact that the majority of what Tufte presents as new and better methods for presenting or refining old styles of plots CANNOT be found in modern graphing packages.
In truth, this is wholly an excellent book for anyone that has to deal with graphs. If you have ever been interested in a graph, or have ever been fascinated by data, get a copy of this book. It won't disappoint.
I would recommend reading Tufte's entire "tetralogy" in order, starting with this one, followed by Envisioning Information, Visual Explanations and Beautiful Evidence. I'd say that this one is the second-best, after Visual Explanations.

This book is a pure description of graphs done in the past. No explanations of how to start a graph.Read more
