    It should be of interest to those who have to display data in graphic form, but it is not a typical book of that kind.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    This book does not attempt to coach you on how to make good graphics, but if that is your goal it attacks a related, important aspect: rules that connect the data and the graphic.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    This is absolutely not a user's guide or a how-to manual for using spss.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Unlike tufte, you will find no hand drawn graphics, or illustrations crafted in adobe illustrator - they can be both beautiful and effective but such graphics would not belong in this book.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    All of the graphics here are created using a computer and a grammatical description and arise directly out of a data set.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Making a graphic elegant and clear is the work of the designer, the purpose of the grammar is to insure that the graphic is tied to data, and to separate graphics that make sense from graphics that are non-sense.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    In a brilliant final chapter the author explains that the famous minard's napoleon's march chart (see tufte) has some incorrect data, and that minard took some liberties with the data.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The conclusion: a beautifully designed and crafted graphic does not assure 100% accuracy.
