Visual Explanations




Edward Tufte, the American statistician and professor emeritus of political science, statistics, and computer science at Yale University, proves the power of simplicity in several visual exercises that consider typography, information graphics, maps, and everyday means of communication. From spacecrafts to rock 'n' roll bands, Tufte manages to keep his subject matter ever insightful and refreshing. The New York Times aptly dubbed him "The Leonardo da Vinci of data."
