Beautiful Evidence – Book Review


As I was getting deeper into UX, I read this. My immediate need was to develop a dashboard for call centre agents. I was exploring d3.js and this book together. Both fed on to each other.  One of those books that takes on a seemingly boring subject – display of information  – and turns into a fascinating topic tour. 

I enjoy reading Tufte because you get it all: elegant writing, beautiful illustrations, historical perspective, and useful practical advice, all in a beautifully book. 

Examples of various forms of graphic presentation are described in the chapters—images, sparklines (statistics presented as data words), arrows, mixed-format words—along with concepts of how to use them well (with examples both good and awful).
