Students attend business school to hone their decision-making skills. They are taught dozens of statistical tools and analytical methods, but their education almost always contains a gaping hole: they rarely learn the importance of careful and effective presentation of data. Once they graduate and enter the business world, their decisions and their firms can suffer as a result.
"Show Me the Numbers" is rare and special. It is a practical and commonsense guide that you can use in your business today and every day. Stephen Few grounds his principles in the work of Edward R. Tufte and others, extends them to comprehensively address the needs of business, and then applies them to hundreds of examples drawn from his own experience. No matter where you are in your career, more skilled presentation of information will help you and your business prosper, and this book will help you do just that. Read it and put it to work – your shareholders and colleagues will thank you for it.About the Author:
