Reviews

'A detailed handbook, Data Points is espe-cially useful for those working on scientific data visualization, guiding the reader through fascinat-ing examples of data, graph-ics, context, presentation and analytics. But this is more than a mere how-to manual. Yau reminds us that the real purpose of most visualiza-tion work is to communicate data to pragmatic ends.' (Nature, May 2013) 'Ultimately, I would recommend this book for anyone interested in the process of design and analysis. It is about making sense of data and that is becoming a crucial skill in this digital age.' (Madia Information & Technology Journal, August 2013) "Data Points opens an exciting view of information blending data analysis, visual interaction, and digital storytelling...the visuals are stunning." (Managing Information, October 2013)
