Abstract

247 Overall, Envisioning Information is a delightful book that is consistent with the high standards of quality and detail that Tufte established in his The Visial Display of Quan- titative Information. The visual examples and text are artfully blended to guide the reader to a better understanding of successful presentation strategies. The book also sets a standard that can not be matched by most of the computer software that is cur- rently available. Hopefully some sharp software publishers will read this book and include the features that Tufte recommends in new editions of their software. This book is highly recommended for anyone who presents visual information on the flatland of paper or computer. Systems Science Phd.
