LXer: Tufte's<i>Beautiful Evidence</i> combines theory and practical advice

Published at LXer:

What does an anti-slavery pamphlet, a graph of French losses during Napoleon's invasion of Russia, and a PowerPoint slide presentation have in common? The answer, according to Edward Tufte's latest collection of essays, Beautiful Evidence , is that all of them combine words and graphics to convey information -- although not with the same success. This is a subject with which readers of Tufte's previous books will be already familiar, and some of the essays in the book have been available online in slightly different forms for several years. Yet, for all this familiarity, in Beautiful Evidence, Tufte still manages to offer readers a combination of practical advice and theory in a style that manages to be both leisurely and challenging at the same time.
