E. R. Tufte 1997 Cheshire: Graphics Press

This is Tufte’s third book on information display, centering on dynamic data. He discusses several examples ranging from the Challenger disaster to cholera in 19th century London to illustrate his point that the most effective way to display data is to show the “smallest effective difference.”
