What people are saying - Write a review
Destined to become a classic, this book will completely change your viewpoint on how important it is to use the right graphics in business, economics, and politics to convey information. Mr. Tufte went above and beyond the typical writer's efforts to produce a book which will entertain and educate you in a way that most business writer's are incapable of doing. This is one of my favorite non-fiction books of all time.
