I just finished Tufte’s The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, Second Edition. Perhaps I’m a lemming, but I find myself agreeing with and appreciating Tufte’s stance on every issue in this text. It is a fantastic collection of simple ways in which to better display (and understand the display of) data. There are few things I can say (without going into great length) about this text other than that it is everything I hoped for and more, and that it is a text without comparison, both in terms of content and careful efforts in publishing. Better than seeing him live. 10/10.
