(Space shuttle and cholera epidemic examples.)
OK, so maybe great graphics won't save the world. But this is a good, well priced introduction into Tufte's line of thinking. If you think you might like his stuff, buy this; get hooked; buy the big books.
The material is outstanding, as is all of Tufte's, but I was very disappointed to pay for something I already had.
Production values are unusually high (which we'd expect from Tufte) with heavy paper, well printed, excellent illustration and color pictures. The pages are large 8.5"x11". The only thing I'm concerned about is the durability of the cover pages (paper back).
Two really good eamples, one good/one bad, of the use of charts.
Low price, 5 stars.
This booklet was a required text for a knowledge management course. I recommend this and all his books if you are an information architect, web designer, graphic artist, or anyone who works with providing and displaying data and information to others. Well worth the $$$

There are a number of Tufte books out there. They are all equally good, but at times the content is overlapping.Published 22 months ago by Dirk Dittmer
A great taste of Tufte's classic book, Visual Explanations. But can be found cheaper on his website.Published 24 months ago by J. Tom
this is not a book, just an article printed on a few sheets of paper. If you plan to buy other Tufte's books the chances are it's going to be reprinted in one of them.Published on December 2, 2013 by Sergey Epifanov
