You will no doubt know by now that I have a book out - I've not been shy in letting people know! What I have neglected to do so far, though, is to give people a flavour of the style and coverage of the book. So, I have extracted a couple of sections and presented them in the pdf files below. The first sample comes from 'Chapter 1. The Context of Data Visualization' and covers some general objectives behind data visualisation design.

The second excerpt comes from 'Chapter 4. Conceiving and Reasoning Visualization Design Options' and specifically relates to the section on the usage of colour.
