I just received a flyer announcing Tufte's seminars to be held in NYC
next month. I don't have the flyer with me right now but there were
about 4 sessions scheduled for mid-March, some in midtown and others
in downtown Manhattan. The price for the one-day seminar was about
$250 including copies of both of Tufte's books and a graphic
depicting the overpowering strength of Napoleon's forces in 1812
as they moved across Poland into Russia toward Moscow and how these
forces were reduced to a trickle as time went on and they eventually
retreated.
