Presenting Information Visually

[TIP] Want to learn more about presenting information visually? Check out the work of Edward Tufte, a professor emeritus at Yale where he taught courses in statistical evidence, information design, and interface design. His books include Visual Explanations, Envisioning Information, The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, and Data Analysis for Politics and Policy.

Tufte has some strong criticisms of PowerPoint. In PowerPoint Does Rocket Science he suggests that overreliance on simple bullet points contributed to the Columbia disaster.
