I got a lot less out of this than I did from The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, which is to say still a fair amount. I thought it was an enjoyable read nonetheless and certainly worth spending a few evenings on. The main thrust of the book seemed to be that it's important to show the reader information in a way that maximally enhances their understanding. Beyond that there's a list of examples of what to do and not do, and I'll remember those down the line when I'm looking at or making pictures. ( )

An eye-opening read. As a linguistic who deals with databases, this book dramatically improved my writing and design of graphics for publication. ( )

In "Visual Explanations," Tufte walks us through various case studies of visual explanations (charts, graphs, graphics, diagrams and maps). Some of the case studies are about great works, while others are about epic failures. By grouping these examples into themes, Tufte himself explains his principles for analzying and design visual explanations.

Using a series of vivid examples from both history and modern day sources, Tufte brings life to what otherwise sounds like a dry subject. He also writes with discipline, always careful to supplement his theories with examples. Lastly, the hardcover itself is solidly designed; the interplay between the figures and the text is pleasant and easy to read. ( )

Categories such as time, space, cause, and number represent the most general relations which exist between things; surpassing all our other ideas in extension, they dominate all the details of our intellectual life. If humankind did not agree upon these essential ideas at every moment, if they did not have the same conception of time, space, cause, and number, all contact between their minds would be impossible - Emile Durkheim, Les formes elementaires de la vie religieuse (Paris 1912), pp. 22-23

In the study of perception, just noticeable differences measure the very limits of human abilities to detect the faintest of differences between, say two adjacent colors almost exactly alike in a continuous spectrum of 100,000 colors. Ad Reinhardt’s paintings rely on these vaporous distinctions, with some gradations revealing themselves only after many minutes of focused viewing. This is fine for art but not for data. Rather than operating at such an exquisite threshold of perceptual acuity, data displays must be clear, assured, reliable, sturdy. In designing information, then, the idea is to us just notable differences, visual elements that make a clear difference by no more – contrasts that are definite, effective, and minimal.
