Presenting Numbers,Tables and Charts

I had very interesting and enjoyable lunch with Sally Bigwood yesterday.

Sally and her sister Melissa have just published a very handy book on how best to present numerical data: Presenting Numbers,Tables and Charts, 144 pages, Oxford University Press ISBN 0198607229

The book draws quite heavily on the work of ASC Ehrenberg, Edward Tufte and Myra Chapman, so it has quite an impressive pedigree. As you would expect, it's very accessible, clearly written and comprehensively illustrated and at less than 7 quid from Amazon UK you can't go wrong.

(Sally tells me that it isn't available in the US, but that you can get it from Amazon Canada for CDN$ 12.95)
