This is an excellent practical guide to information visualization, with three main parts: a theoretical background including a brief history, perceptual mechanisms, and types of visualizations; a workflow part of chart design and prototype; and finally how to present and read charts. The book concludes with the observation of upcoming interactive visualizations enabled by computer programs beyond traditional static charts for print mediums.

In addition to the technical content, the book has beautiful layout and examples, with pointers for further readings.
