This is a much better book than the first one, there's a lot more substance and less polemic. However, it's not very well written and his main points get lost in the long series of examples, so it takes some work to get that substance out of it.

I began reading Tuft's graphic information series in an attempt to thwart and destroy the boring academic PowerPoint. Edward Tufte is Professor Emeritus at Yale University, where he taught courses in statistical evidence, information design, and interface design.

Envisioning Information

Envisioning Information was recommended to me by a friend as a way to improve how I think about and design visualisations. Although less popular than his other work Visual Display Quantitative Information which is still on my to-read list , this book has many interesting examples and ideas on how to present complex information. Of particular interest to me, this book gives a large discussion on how cartographers design and present geographical maps. It also gives practical rules on how to design, colour and layout data in a visualisation. This post is part review, part write-up and part discussion about what I found interesting in this book.
