Stephen Few is on a mission to help organizations squeeze real value from the mounds of data that surround and threaten to bury them. Through his consultancy Perceptual Edge, founded in 2003, for many years Stephen taught simple, clear, and practical data visualization techniques for analyzing and presenting quantitative information. During this time he wrote four popular books about data visualization: "Show Me the Numbers: Designing Tables and Graphs to Enlighten," "Information Dashboard Design: Displaying Data for At-a-glance Monitoring," "Now You See It: Simple Visualization Techniques for Quantitative Analysis," and "Signal: Understanding What Matters in a World of Noise." His work now extends beyond data visualization to address other aspects of data and its use. His most recent book, "Big Data, Big Dupe: A Little Book About a Big Bunch of Nonsense," is the first to address these broader issues.
