Presenting Data Effectively

Second Edition

Presenting Data Effectively was so popular, it is now in a second edition. Order now.

This time around, you’re in for some big changes.

WE ARE IN FULL COLOR. Hallelujah! That alone is probably enough to justify a second edition of this book but it isn’t the only reason.

Ever since the first edition of this book published, my inbox has been flooded with requests from wonderful data nerds all over the globe, doing their best to present data effectively. I’ve logged so many miles traveling near and far to help. Nearly every client has asked hard questions, set their sights on lofty designs, and then asked “Can Microsoft Office do that?”

They have pushed me to invent more solutions, develop new frameworks for our thinking, and create more streamlined techniques. And you, Rockstar, have pushed yourself! You’ve written to me with your own hacks and tricks to make reporting ever better and I’m thrilled to feature the work of readers and clients throughout this second edition.

Order now and join so many others that call this work “life changing.”


Effective Data Visualization

The Right Chart for the Right Data

Holy smokes my next book is in print! Order now.

I wrote another book because I care about you. 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.

Order now and learn how to totally change your visualization game.

Preorders have been so strong that this book has already been the #1 New Release in both Communications and Social Science on Amazon! Amazing!

Presenting Data Effectively

Graphic design secrets for data nerds

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).
