Christmas Book Gift Ideas

OK, it’s a little late for Christmas gift ideas, but here are some really good data design and visualization books:

  1. Rapid Graphs with Tableau Software 6 by Eileen and Stephen McDaniel.  This is a solid introduction to the basics of Tableau.  Power users should skip it.
  2. Visual Complexity by Manuel Lima.  Fellow New Schooler Lima really explores the evolution of problems and how to illustrate connections and complexity.
  3. Information Graphics by Sandra Rendgen and Julius Wiedemann (Ed.)  I’m not a huge fan of infographics but any book by Taschen is  going to be good.
