Books references about dataviz

  • As discussed during the “Beyond pretty” conference, here are 2 books I recommend on dataviz:

    • Good Charts by Scott Berinato
      A guide for better data visualization by the Harvard Business Review in-house dataviz expert.

    • Storytelling with Data by Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic
      A step-by-step guide on creating and designing better charts and telling stories with them.

    Both books go into details about what makes a good visualization (i.e. how to build one well and how to adapt it to your context.)
    They also give tools on creating a dataviz from scratch (no programming though.)

    For dataviz inspiration, you can also check the following websites:

      Thoughtful content on data visualization and visual storytelling.

      Home of Stephen Few, author of several books about data visualization. The examples section contains interesting discussions.

      Data visualization best practices, methods for improving existing work, and tips and tricks about Tableau software.
