BookReview: Envisioning Information
by Edward R. Tufte, Graphics Press, May 1990, 978-0961392116
Edward Tufte covers graphics like no other. This book as amazing breadth and depth. I read every word, because his prose is so beautiful along with the great examples. He takes a low fat approach to providing us with information. Despite the book's beauty, it is flawed in that if you read The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, you probably learned most of what you need to know to apply Tufte's ideas. Keep it simple, eliminate fluff, and above all keep the information the central focus of visual displays.
