A little disappointed Would have preferred a bit time spent on the visuals and a detailed strategy of how the journals graphics were born Was expecting a bit detail Maybe some examples and re world strategy we had this request, this time, this was the result The digital printing does the book a disservice and the minimal color used is flat Paper version The orange gray section is fine but I think the printing should have been done on a smooth paper It matters from screen to paper You can see the printing and paper take away from the over all design The design was thoughtful but took a hit on printing I would not have purchased in the store had I skimmed it.With that said quick insightful read I was just expecting.Some were happy it was simplified and minimal I wanted , and a nicer print job. In Today S Data Driven World, Professionals Need To Know How To Express Themselves In The Language Of Graphics Effectively And Eloquently Yet Information Graphics Is Rarely Taught In Schools Or Is The Focus Of On The Job Training Now, For The First Time, Dona M Wong, A Student Of The Information Graphics Pioneer Edward Tufte, Makes This Material Available For All Of Us In This Book, You Will Learn To Choose The Best Chart That Fits Your Data The Most Effective Way To Communicate With Decision Makers When You Have Five Minutes Of Their Time How To Chart Currency Fluctuations That Affect Global Business How To Use Color Effectively How To Make A Graphic Colorful Even If Only Black And White Are Available The Book Is Organized In A Series Of Mini Workshops Backed Up With Illustrated Examples, So Not Only Will You Learn What Works And What Doesn T But Also You Can See The Dos And Don Ts For Yourself This Is An Invaluable Reference Work For Students And Professional In All Fields I do a lot of graphics and I consider myself very good at it and people testify to that, but after reading half the book it was like wearing glasses for the first time, I started seeing the flaws in my graphical presentations that wasn t able to see before, much like how glasses clears the vision the book is presented in a succinct and easy to understand manner, no clutter what so ever.just do yourself a favor and buy it Early chapters are a bit painful to read for people with a base knowledge So I flipped thru and skimmed the subsequent chapters There s some useful advice on color combinations schemes Common pitfalls to avoid They mention the 2 3 scaling rule I ve heard before but I didn t think this WSJ book described it that well comparatively.There s a lot of focus on basic charting types bar, pie, line and less to little on some of the cooler infographics that being designed these days. To be fair to Ms Dono M Wong the first two causes of my disappointment with The Wall Street Journal Guide to Information graphics are on me It is a short book How many of us check the page count on prospective book buys The 160 pages are slightly less information dense than they could be because space is used in a way like an information graphic and less like a text The second problem I lay on my head is that a fair slice of the Guide focuses on reporting Wall Street as in stocks, money and other related Wall Street centric issues Com on it says Wall Street in the title So I take my rap even as I stick the book with an ok rating.For me the first 1 3 of the book was very helpful and will remain so as a ready reference The best use of the book is to scan it for concepts and refer back as part of designing and checking your work A second part of the book is so important I will have to find a way to share it at work is the section that speaks to color choices that work best with the color blind Such as My captain and other senior members of Department leadership.Ultimately this book is meaty, but there needs to be The section on maps is particularly thin, Ms Wong may not feel that she has enough specialized knowledge of the field of cartography, but if you are publishing under the name Wall Street Journal there should be human assets available I get the finance industry emphasis but if nothing else the book makes the cases for other sections, or a series that speak to other major consumers of information graphics. A bit too simplistic compared to other books but it is a guide, after all Good quick reference material for those who prefer to have it handy in the office I would highly recommend using this only as a refresher It is not comprehensive enough to explain in detail anything covered in the body of work For that, I would look elsewhere.
