The Wall Street Journal Guide to Information Graphics: The Dos and Don'ts of Presenting Data, Facts, and Figures

Dona M. Wong

Book cover

Dona Wong now works at my employer, so I thought it would be interesting to read her book. It came highly recommended by a couple of friends. I’ll admit that I was skeptical that it would be of interest to me, because I feel like I’m pretty good at data visualization. I was partly right in that there weren’t a ton of new insights for me, but there were definitely some good ideas that I hadn’t encountered before.

The book is admirably straightforward and spare, except for the end part, where there is some useless filler added in that isn’t related to information graphics.

My Goodreads rating: 3 stars
