Data Points: Sample chapter

May 10, 2013

It’s hard to believe it’s been over a month since Data Points: Visualization That Means Something hit the shelves. Thanks to all of you for the tweets, emails, and pictures of the book in the wild. Every one make me smile, and I’m glad that people are finding it helpful.

In case you’re still deciding, here’s a sample chapter from the book. It’s Chapter 3 on representing data and should give you a good idea of what to expect. And of course it’s way sexier in print.

What others are saying

Of course, don’t just take my word for it. Here’s a sample of the chatter on Twitter.
