A must read

Tufte is without doubt the authority on the graphical display of information. I attended one of his seminars a few years ago and was impressed by his knowledge and passion for his field.

One of Tufte's best!

This is the seminal work for learning about data visualization. Although originally self-published in 1983, many of Tufte's principles hold true to this day. Definitely worth reading if you want to learn more about how to create clear and concise visual displays of data.
