Show Me The Numbers - Stephen Few
By Josh Kaufman
It’s rare to find a business analysis that doesn’t feature at least one table, chart, or graph. Unfortunately, bad information design practices mean these elements often create more confusion for the reader, not less.
Show Me The Numbers is a comprehensive and practical introduction to information design that will help you communicate business data with clarity and precision.
Good information design is about making choices about what to include and what to leave out. Building on the work of the renowned information designer Edward Tufte, Stephen Few shows the reader how to apply good information design practices to business reporting and analysis. By emphasizing only a few important elements and eliminating the unimportant, your tables and graphs will powerfully illustrate your findings without confusing the reader.
After reading Show Me The Numbers, you’ll be well-equipped to make your business reports and presentations clear and persuasive.
