4.0 von 5 Sternen Worth it for the intro and examples alone. 15. April 2012
Von Anthony Nailer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book thinking it was a primer on designing info-graphics. Blame the combination of late night browsing and one click kindle ordering. It's actually more of a `restroom reader' or whatever quaint name you use for the small pile of books that lives on your toilet. Good work colleague gift potential too.

On the kindle, the book weighs in at 481 small pages, with the captions for a picture occasionally being cut onto the next page. It's mildly confusing, but otherwise fine. Some of the smallest text used in the info-graphs needs zooming in to read, or at least did on my computer.

Things I liked: the book is genuinely funny in parts; light enough to blast through without feeling guilty about wasting time and actually comes with a bibliography for the various `facts' used! I also liked the introduction, but I'll come back to that later.

Things I disliked: It's a little short, as it doesn't take much time to read each info-graph. Despite an excellent start, the book does lose a little of the coherence of the sets of ideas towards the end. The result feels like the first section was written to present to the publisher, and the tail end was rushed out on a deadline.

As a student, things could always be cheaper. I don't think I'd pay $10 for this again; the bulk of it is just too similar to what you can find online for free. At $3 it'd be an absolute bargain, so maybe $4 for the kindle version? It's not like there's huge printing costs associated.

As I mentioned at the start of the review, I bought it thinking it was a primer on designing infographs. Well, it certainly provides dozens of examples. The very first section also includes a brilliant and witty introduction to the concept:

"A stealth bomber with an explosive payload of pure data. A wet willy of knowledge inserted into the eager ear."

And a brief round up of the comedic possibilities of classic graph formats. Were the authors to ever return and expand this into a textbook, I'd instantly buy it (and probably moan about the price in the review). I hope they're reading.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Visuals next to information is not infographics, this was poorly done 17. Mai 2013
Von Grady - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love infographics and have been looking through a bunch of books like this for inspiration. This one was like an introductory book for people that had never heard of them, except that the infographics it included were absolutely terrible. Mind you, some were fine and enjoyable, but most of the 'infographics' were actually just text next to an interesting image. The point of an infographic is show information visually, while this just had visuals next to information.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Worth the Hardcopy 25. November 2012
Von Harmony - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is book is clever and hilarious. The infographics range all over the board - from a comparison of philosophical facial hair to a handy-dandy reference chart of movie character heights (1ft - 30ft!)

I initially purchased it in its Kindle format - it looks fantastic on the desktop app, and I imagine it would be just as great on the Kindle fire (which I don't own).

I've decided to purchase the traditional paperbook version as well, though, because while it is great for my own selfish consumption, I'd love to lay it out somewhere in my house to suck in unsuspecting friends and family members. Besides, according to one flowchart, purchasing this book is the key to being awesome and good-looking. If there's even a chance...

4.0 von 5 Sternen A bit lightweight 17. Dezember 2012
Von NorCalMod - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was shopping for a few infographics books for a student assignment as stumbled across this. For less than $15, how can you go wrong? While the size and page count are listed in the specs, it arrived alongside "Information Graphics" by Sandra Rendgen which was 4X the cost but easily 20X the book... while I was amazed at how dense the Rendgen book was, I was a bit disappointed in how small and thin this was by comparison. While there are certainly some good examples in the small book, it's more of a "stocking stuffer" than a real book. If you're shopping for similar books, consider the vastly more dense Rendgen book or the Lankow book which goes into a bit more about technique and process -- dollar for dollar, both are better purchases if you're looking for a "real" book on the subject. This one would make a great co-worker gift for the data-nerd in your life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hilarity Ensues 31. Dezember 2011
Von Bridget - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book just came from Amazon, and I have yet to peel it from my husband's hands. He is reading it out loud to me, laughing before each page. He keeps saying, "This is the last one I am reading out loud," but has read half the book to me. It is witty, clever, hilarious and solves the world's most pressing issues all in one slim volume.
