This book aims to demystify the design process for those who are already comfortable with data analysis, showing the reader how to encode information visually via a linear process of decision-making.

"List of rules, not enough examples" - by Mark Horgan on 04-SEP-2013

This book consists of a lot of dos and donts in designing data visualizations. I don't find this the best method to learning a subject. I prefer to learn by example. The book could do with more illustrated examples to back up it's points.
