    Although originally published in 1983, when professional graphics artists prepared most of the charts and graphs used in presentations and official publications, this book remains useful for anyone wh...

    Entertaining and illustrative. Tufte shows strong examples of both elegant and ghastly designs, taking several opportunities to improve the latter with surgical erasure. These examples form the basis ...
