8 juillet 2011
Practical data design tips from a data visualization expert of the modern age Data doesn’t decrease; it is ever–increasing and can be overwhelming to organize in a way that makes sense to its intended audience. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could actually visualize data in such a way that we could maximize its potential and tell a story in a clear, concise manner? Thanks to the creative genius of Nathan Yau, we can. With this full–color book, data visualization guru and author Nathan Yau uses step–by–step tutorials to show you how to visualize and tell stories with data. He explains how to gather, parse, and format data and then design high quality graphics that help you explore and present patterns, outliers, and relationships. Presents a unique approach to visualizing and telling stories with data, from a data visualization expert and the creator of flowingdata.com, Nathan Yau Offers step–by–step tutorials and practical design tips for creating statistical graphics, geographical maps, and information design to find meaning in the numbers Details tools that can be used to visualize data–native graphics for the Web, such as ActionScript, Flash libraries, PHP, and JavaScript and tools to design graphics for print, such as R and Illustrator Contains numerous examples and descriptions of patterns and outliers and explains how to show them Visualize This demonstrates how to explain data visually so that you can present your information in a way that is easy to understand and appealing.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 L'expert parle 3 septembre 2013
Par Fred. P
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Nathan Yau est l'un des jeunes experts de ce jeune domaine. Féru de stats et de design, l'auteur contribue beaucoup à la réflexion sur la création de dataviz. Certaines pages restent quand même très basiques. Ce n'est pas non plus un livre de recettes : pas de scripts, d'algos, etc... mais une démonstration de la façon dont l'auteur approche chaque cas d'analyse de données. Ça manque toutefois un peu de profondeur.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Diappointingly Vague and Circular 10 janvier 2012
Par John Miller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I was really hoping for a book on how to abstract data sets into visualizations, with concrete programming examples. In other words, "ask yourself these questions about the data; with these answers (or those), the data is best visualized in these formats. Now, let's implement".

Instead, I found it to be a kind of "circular" logic (visualize data in good ways is important... here is some data visualized in a good way... now doesn't that show how important it is - and it's cool... btw here is a code snippet). It is almost like the book is just trying to convince me that data visualization can be powerful and cool. I know that - that's why I bought this, I wanted to learn the tools and techniques to determine the best and most innovative way to visualize data sets, not how the author has visualized existing data sets he has dealt with.

Interesting enough to borrow if you see it on a friend's desk, but I don't think I'd purchase it again if I had the opportunity.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great start 9 août 2011
Par willkristi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I really enjoyed this book. It is absolutely beautifully printed and the examples are well made and well explained. There are a couple of things I would have liked to see done a little differently.

First, every example uses Adobe Illustrator to make the visualization look as good as they do. In order to complete the exercises, you must have Illustrator. Nathan does explain that it can be obtained at a discount or you can an older version, but it's still a pretty big financial investment. If I hadn't been able to dig up a old copy, Illustrator 9, I would have been out of luck. Even with my outdated copy, not everything worked for me. If he had included at least a couple of examples with the open source Inkscape, this would have been a 5 star rating.

The second thing I would have liked to see a little different is more statistical info to go along with the visualizations. We often visualize data to help make decisions. Nathan shows how to display a LOESS line to see the best fit for the curve, but he stops there. Maybe discussing R² ( correlation coefficient) analysis to determine whether the values are are a good match would help me feel better about analyzing the data beyond just visualization.

That said, this is an extremely well written book and easily deserves 4 stars. Dig up an old copy of Illustrator (preferably CSx versions) and enjoy this book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Tools usage, not design pricinples 1 janvier 2012
Par A Medlin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
If you are looking for a book on how to use Illustrator and R to create various visual elements, this book may be for you. It shows you examples using various tools, and is more of a guide to creating charts and other elements using those tools. This book is not for people not interested in using R or Illustrator or Excel for that matter. If you are looking for a book that will outline how you should THINK about presenting data that you have, and give you constructive ideas, this book is not for you. The FlowingData blog has a bunch of great tips for that, so that is what I was expecting. However, when I saw a bunch of screenshots and sample code, this is more of a programming guide than a design book.

In addition, the first chapter in the preview is not representative of the book, IMO.

A more apt title would be "How to use Adobe Illustrator and R to Create Charts".

If you are looking for a 'How To' guide, this might very well be your book. I'm rating it low because I was expecting a book that would give me design principles and guides, not show me code samples and tool screenshots.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice book on visualizing with R 21 juillet 2011
Par Bill Ferster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This is a nice addition to the books on data visualization. It will be particulary useful for people wanting to learn R (the lingua franca of statisticians) to create good looking visualizations. The writing style is crisp and conversational and is organized around the kind of things one might want the data to communicate: time series, part-to-whole comparisons, relationships, etc. It does not require any expertise in programming or statistics to understand.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 FlowingData in book form 12 juillet 2011
Par Stephen Ball - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I'm a long-time fan of Nathan Yau's FlowingData blog, so I pre-ordered this book as soon as I saw that it was coming. This book is exactly what I hoped that it would be: a collection of introductions to various analyses, data sources, and absolutely gorgeous examples of data visualization.
