Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The rise of infographics across virtually all print and electronic mediaand#8212;from a striking breakdown of classic cocktails to a graphic tracking 200 influential moments that changed the world to visually arresting depictions of Twitter trafficand#8212;reveals patterns in our lives and our world in fresh and surprising ways. In the era of big data, where information moves faster than ever, infographics provide us with quick, often influential bursts of art and knowledgeand#8212;on the environment, politics, social issues, health, sports, arts and culture, and moreand#8212;to digest, to tweet, to share, to go viral.

The Best American Infographics captures the finest examples from the past year, including the ten best interactive infographics, of this mesmerizing new way of seeing and understanding our world.

Book News Annotation:

Tufte's latest is too new to be listed in Resources for College Libraries with two of his earlier magisterial works on graphical representation of reality; but we fully expect it to achieve that eminence. Beautiful Evidence continues his techniques for presenting immediate compelling images demonstrating data. His first woprk, Visual Display of Quantitative Information, has been selected by over 2100 library members of OCLC. Here is a happy exception to the contempt in which author-published books are held; Tufte-published books are revered for their intellectual content, lucid presentation and splendid bookmaking.

Edward Tufte is the foremost author on the topic of the graphical display of information.

Andrew Crawford, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by Andrew Crawford)
Another exquisitely-produced master work by information design master Edward Tufte. Beautiful Evidence is possibly his most accessible work yet. This one should be required reading for anyone who creates or consumes presentations or research of any sort – business executives, scientists and researchers, political analysts – in fact, everyone. Learn how to avoid being bamboozled by those who abuse data to mislead, intentionally or unintentionally. Learn how stop torturing your audiences with PowerPoint. I've read a *lot* of books on information design and, this one is at the top of my recommended reading list.
