Data visualization is becoming an increasingly important field in web development. The ability to take complex data and present it in a clear and easily understood manner can be the difference between readers engaging with your content or just passing on by. If you’ve got something important to say, you need to consider how best to present your data.
The biggest problem I find with many IT books is that, while the information they contain can be good, the writing style is not great. Descriptions can be unclear, difficult to understand, or just plain boring. Not great if you want to learn at a pace – particularly for complex subjects such as data visualization.
