There are plenty of books that explain the scientific approach to visualizing data or how to use specific technology, but not enough guidance on how to get started and avoid pitfalls for pushing data visualization apps/tools in a business setting. This is targeted to business minded individuals or even IT professionals who are on the hook for communicating information back to colleagues or management. There is a ton of nuggets of knowledge here, so I am not quite sure why there has been a couple of bad reviews. Either way, I liked there was a process, BI Dashboard Formula, that seems well thought out by the authors, because regardless what you call it these days, my business users are asking for "dashboards". In the business world you don't produce visualizations inside of Photoshop/Illustrator, nor do you have the aid of an experienced graphic designer. My business users put me on the hook for delivering not just visualization but a full blown visualization application so I felt like this book has helped mature my thought process for the next time I meet with my business users. What would be great is a list of all of the visualization tools out there and how they stack up to let me implement the processes described in this book.

Thorough and lively...written by experts.

Like so much media nowadays, electronic or print, much of this is stretched out to fill out the available time/space. This book could have been half as long. Also, this book sticks to its title; it is about "dashboards" only. Even then, it doesn't tell you a lot about the mechanics of tying into your Excel spreadsheets. Just consider it a good guide on form.

I have been reading 'dummies' books for years. This book is the least useful book I have ever read. There is nothing in this book on how to actually create a visualization.

The entire book is all about very simple topics, e.g., size and color of fonts, arrow placement, history of data viz, etc. It is almost like the authors know nothing at all about interactive visualizations and were just putting this together because the title is flashy and they would make money.

It is true there are references in the back, but I went through all of these and found them little if at all useful. Probably the only benefit I found in the next book is that I plan to read (Data Visualization book by Tufte).

Sorry authors- I'm sure you worked very hard on this book, but I just don't see how this book would help a professional in the least..maybe others will find it more useful.

I knew this book was an introduction but it really doesn't cover much about data visualization. I got a few ideas from the links it includes, but other than that it was a waste of money and time.

In my opinion this book is a "must read" for organizations that will be undergoing a Data Visualization or Dashboard effort or are currently struggling in the middle of one. Just to disclose, we were struggling in our dashboard project and decided to elicit the help of one of the authors. The approach they have outlined in this book is exactly what she practices out in the field. She guided us through applying this approach which helped my development team and business users get out of the project spiral we were in, with our friendships intact :-), and delivered a dashboard solution that helped the business operations tremendously.

With the visual nature of this medium, aesthetics, color, placement, "actionability" of the information and interactions users can perform with the solution are all critical to a successful solution and therefore I feel that chapters 7 to 9 of this book is worth the book's weight in platinum ... let me explain why I write that. Even with multiple data visualization or guided analytic projects under our belts, we still hear business users say "I'll know what I want when I see it.". Using the prescribed process outlined in those chapters of this book guided us to getting through that phase and achieved a WELL-DEFINED TARGET at the end.
Before you take on a dashboard effort, read this book and encourage your business clients to read it as well so that the appropriate expectations are set and the same successful approach we benefited from is laid out by the book for every one of your project participants to understand.

If you want a click-by-click guide on how to create a dashboard, download the PDF user guide of your dashboard software of choice. But if you want to learn how to go about conducting a successful data visualization effort, read this book.
