- Stephanie D. H. Evergreen - Evergreen Data & Evaluation, LLC
Now in striking full color, the Second Edition shows readers how to make the research results presented in reports, slideshows, dashboards, posters, and data visualizations more interesting, engaging, and impactful. The book guides students, researchers, evaluators, entrepreneurs, and non-profit workers—anyone reporting data to an outside audience—through design choices in four primary areas: graphics, text, color, and arrangement. The Second Edition features an improved layout with larger screenshots, a review of the recent literature on data visualization, and input from a panel of graphic design experts.

The book is aimed at all those involved in the presentation of information. For graphic designers, however, this book probably offers little new.

It is practice-oriented and offers scientifically proven arguments for the recommendations. Numerous learning suggestions, tools, tips and further references to further sources for more information round off the book.
It is a concise book to add to an existing textbook. Easy to read and follow. Nice reference materials.
