Robert Kosara’s review of Visualize This and Visual Complexity
Robert Kosara has just finished a pair of reviews for Manuel Lima’s Visual Complexity and Nathan Yau’s Visualize This for Science. He doesn’t pull any punches, showing the pros and cons of each, along with information on how he came to do the review.
I’m really conflicted about Visual Complexity. While it is a beautiful book that provides a great overview over a large range of visualization examples, it has one big flaw: it doesn’t deliver on the promise of structuring and understanding network visualization techniques.
