This book takes the reader on an eye-opening tour of the methods and history of presenting data by visual means, showing one how to be both a better producer and consumer of graphics. It sheds light on how well-done graphic representations illuminate subtle and significant elements of the information they represent, and how poorly-conceived graphical devices can misrepresent and distort facts and data. 152 illus.
