   Poor Quality Production
The book is very poorly made, with cover and interior pages alike measuring just 2.5 inches by 3 1/2 inches. It has all the look and feel of a DIY copy you might make in a copy shop rather than a professionally published book. I have a copy of the book on my kindle, which is upside down.
   Great Examples
As a teacher and a graduate student, this was a great book filled with tons of examples. Thanks for the great example of how the excel files used in the examples are available online and that there is R code that goes with many of the examples for recreating the images.
   Learn to communicate data stories
Amazing examples of how this framework can be used. IBM calls the move "a tool agnostic approach to solving problems." Good visualization and communication practices will set the stage for future collaboration.
   A necessary book to develop visualizations best practices
It's an awesome book, with a lot of sensible tips and step-by-step exercises to develop meaningful charts and presentations, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Great reading, too.
   BEST book for learning the hows and whys of data visualization
I'm so excited to see what the rest of the book is about, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the story is about. I lead a team of survey researchers and data analysts, and I always recommend this book to my colleagues. It's just that they're sitting there, too, on my office shelf. This book gives very concrete examples of what visuals to use for which kinds of data, and walks readers through the hows and whys of data viz decision making. This is a great resource for anyone using data in business.
   A Data Storytelling MUST HAVE for your data visualization library!
His refreshing approach to communicating data clearly and quickly is incredibly powerful, making data analysis and data interpretation truly understandable for everyone. This book is pure gold, especially when combined with Cole's first book, Storytelling with Data Visualization for Business Professionals. If you want to communicate data or effectively teach others how to do so, then you will find this book invaluable. It's a data storytelling workshop in a box that you can easily use with your own team.
   Practical application to improve your data visualization efforts
Yes, I do. He's got a new album out Monday, and I think it's going to be great." As a lecturer at Stanford Graduate School of Business, I've been teaching with her first book, Storytelling with Data, for the past three years. I highly recommend this product to my students and clients. Her ability to simplify the complex message without losing its power is second to none. Thanks to Amazon, I am now able to read this book. JD Schramm, Stanford Graduate School of Business.
   Get better by practice and teaching
The best way to learn is to practice and teach others, he said. The book, "Designing for Success: A Guide to Building a Professional Information Design Team," will be used by information designers who are interested in enhancing their craft and teaching others. Thanks to Cole, we can all learn how to do the work that all of us in the visualization field need most: visualization. Don't just learn make sure you go out and share the knowledge you will acquire in this book and show your friends how to do the same. Thanks for all the love, Mr. Cole.
   If you want to create graphs that make sense to other people, this book is a must-have!
This book is packed with relevant and easy-to-understand examples that are real world. She also provides her own direction and solution for you to practice and ones to do at your desk in the workplace. Whether you are a seasoned professional at creating graphs or someone who's been asked for the first time to create a chart, you will learn something from this book.
   Great book!!
Given how much I loved the first book, I had high expectations for the sequel. Only when he exceeded them did we stop listening to him. Is it time to buy the first book? I recommend purchasing both as I have learned so much from each. Yes, I still refer back to the first book and will add this second one to my desk. The new edition includes more tips, examples, and thoughtful questions to help you take your learning to the next level.
