Chapters are organized by specific data patterns and analytical techniques, describing how to look for the following six kinds of patterns: The book is recommended for any researcher who works with large data sets. It is well-written, contains clear examples, and references recent research and the latest tools available for data analysis.

I've worked with graphs and charts for a long time, and it has always been my experience that certain things work "better" in some kinds of presentations than others, but I have never been able to articulate why. The author does a great job of walking through what is happening in our heads when presented with visualized data, and how to take advantage of those thought processes to make presentations more effective.

The best kind of teaching is when you keep having "Aha!

This book abounds with them, and Mr. Few does a creditable job of making it all very digestible. If you're new to creating charts, have a deviant's level of interest in data geekery, or need this book for a class, get it. And get it in print. The site version doesn't have the same impact. This is the first book downloadd for use in my PhD program, and at work, that I have felt others should read. I mention my current academic undertaking only because the academic world suffers as badly as the business world when it comes to actually communicating quantitative information.

The author starts by stating that we have an information problem; that we have too much to digest effectively without changing our methods. I disagree.

What we have is mounds and mounds of unorganized data that too few people have taken the effort to turn into useful information. The author's achieved goal was to provide a number of methods by which that data can be used more effectively.

But he does more than provide a catalog of methods.

He shows how some of them are better in one situation, and that other methods are better in other situations or when the presenter's goals are different. By doing so, he has also given us a very nice set of tools for determining if the next graph or chart is failing to provide all it can or if the presenter is misleading his audience. Few provides figures on nearly every page of the book and does an outstanding job of explaining them.

This book will be referred to often in my career. See all 56 reviews.

Burlingame, California: Print book: English View all editions and formats Summary: Now You See It teaches simple, fundamental, and practical techniques that anyone can use to make sense of numbers. These techniques rely on something that almost everyone has--vision--using graphs to discover trends, patterns, and exceptions that reside in quantitative information and interactions with those graphs to uncover what the discoveries mean. Although some questions about quantitative data can only be answered using sophisticated statistical techniques, most can be answered using simple visualizations--quantitative sense-making methods that can be used by people with little statistical training"--Back cover.

Good data visualization takes the burden of effort off brain and puts it on the eyes. Stephen Few's 8 Core Principles that let us accomplish that are: Simplify - Just like an artist can capture the essence of an emotion with just a few lines, good data visualization captures the essence of data - without oversimplifying.

We don't want a tool that gives us 19 more options after we decide we want a cloumn graph. We want a tool like Tableau that knows which visualization is appropriate and then creates it. Compare - We need to be able to compare our data visualizations side by side.
