Subject:Tufte's books -- and seminars From:Mark I Halpern <Mark_Halpern -at- SMTPGATE -dot- TESSERACT -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 2 Feb 1996 13:30:58 PST
If you want the two books Edward Tufte has written on the
visual presentation of information, but are a little intimidated
by their price, try this: get your employer to send you to one
of his one-day seminars. He gives them in most major cities
during each year, and they're well worth attending. But the
best part is that each attendee gets copies of both books -- and
most employers will let the employees keep those copies.
