Effective Data Visualization

The Right Chart for the Right Data 

Evergreen_Effective_Data_Visualization_PASS3Holy smokes my next book is almost out! Look for it Spring 2016.

I wrote another book because I care about. I know what it's like looking at lovely data visualizations in the media and then looking back at your own data and knowing something could be better but not knowing exactly how to do it.

This book is your blueprint.

I walk you through how to choose the right chart with a super practical method. Then I show you how to make that chart, step-by-step, with screenshots and some loving guidance. Because I want you to be able to do create effective data visualization yourself, using tools you already own.

I want you to be a ninja rockstar.

Presenting Data Effectively

Communicating Your Findings for Maximum Impact  


So I wrote a book, Presenting Data Effectively: Communicating Your Findings for Maximum Impact and the awesome people at SAGE published it in October 2013.

Presenting Data Effectively is about how to better design our reports, slideshows, research posters, and graphs. It begins and ends with the science of communication and a grounded discussion of how the brain takes in and retains information. That critical, research-based foundation informs all of our choices about how we present data. With a signature style that combines research with humor and a ton of examples and practical guidance, Presenting Data Effectively is a resource for anyone interested in using data to communicate.

Order through Amazon (which seems to be sold out quite a bit) or Sage (ships right away).
