Tufte Æ 2 Summary The classic book on statistical graphics charts tables Theory and practice in the design of data graphics 250 illustrations of the best and a few of the worst statistical graphics with detailed analysis of how to display data for precise effective uick analysis Design of the high resolution. 25 stars I read this book because 1 as a scientist I care a lot about visualizing information in ways that are both meaningful and attractive and 2 this book is hailed as a classic and cited by many when discussing what constitutes a good graphic After eying it on many coffee tables and office bookshelves I finally decided to pick it up from the library I m glad that I didn t buy it There are some positives a few inspiring examples of creative precise designs that tell a story and reveal insights about the data Some of the negative examples graphs that exaggerate or obscure the data or that are heavy handed and ugly are also useful to think about and are occasionally very funny I also liked how it touched on the history and evolution of different types of graphs However a major flaw is the lack of thought that was put into the writing Many of the axioms that Tufte proposes for graphics could eually well apply to writing For example don t patronize your audience and don t waste ink on non information Tufte unfortunately goes against both these principles with his disdainful verbose tone A great deal of verbiage and jargon could be stripped away to yield a text with much higher information density to use his own term The advice presented is reasonable but much of it is just common sense for anyone who s paid a little attention to elementary mathstatistics or who simply takes the time to look at graphs and think about how they could be improved He also contradicts his own advice about providing adeuate explanation for plots by offering zero explanation for several plots that are nearly inscrutable beyond saying this is great or this is silly His attitude towards artists is especially belittling I was hoping for a thoughtful take on the balance between beauty and practicality in graphic design All in all I think this the book has some smart points and good images but not uite enough to warrant its position on a pedestal

People have told me to read this book for years and I ve always been impressed by the strength of their recommendationsHowever on reading this book I was initially underwhelmed I felt like Tufte was just rehashing common sense about graphs I read through it and found myself saying yeah yeah I get it On reflection a week after finishing I realized this book is genius Tufte concisely and clearly articulates principles which should be common sense so well that they have appearance to be common sense
