This was just ehat I needed but I am anxious for the next level.  I like that the author stuck to a consistent template, but it would be nice in the next version or in the next book to explore other methods of accomplishing the same result with other types of data sets.  I would also like some additional discussion of d3 helper methods for working with data.
