Reseña del editor
Dashboards have become popular in recent years as uniquely powerful tools for communicating important information at a glance. Although dashboards are potentially powerful, this potential is rarely realized. The greatest display technology in the world won't solve this if you fail to use effective visual design. And if a dashboard fails to tell you precisely what you need to know in an instant, you'll never use it, even if it's filled with cute gauges, meters, and traffic lights. Don't let your investment in dashboard technology go to waste.
This book will teach you the visual design skills you need to create dashboards that communicate clearly, rapidly, and compellingly. Information Dashboard Design will explain how to:
- Avoid the thirteen mistakes common to dashboard design
- Provide viewers with the information they need quickly and clearly
- Apply what we now know about visual perception to the visual presentation of information
- Minimize distractions, cliches, and unnecessary embellishments that create confusion
- Organize business information to support meaning and usability
- Create an aesthetically pleasing viewing experience
- Maintain consistency of design to provide accurate interpretation
- Optimize the power of dashboard technology by pairing it with visual effectiveness

If you have read Few's other work, Show Me The Numbers, then you will notice plenty of overlap in content (I actually prefer that book over this one). Therefore, you wont glean much new information from this work. Overall, I love the detail Few puts into this book since I am intrigued with Data Visualization. It's always good to hear from the experts in the field.
I recommend this for anyone interested in data visualization, dashboards, or design. This book is worth it!
In about 200 pages this book covers every aspect of usable and informative dashboard design. Because of its brevity and readability it's a great recommendation for your manager also!
Before starting any work on a dashboard read this book to learn about: 13 common dashboard mistakes; learning the limits of short-term memory; dashboard usability; and other essential aspects of dashboard design.
This book is worth buying for the four sample dashboard designs at the end of it. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Most of the book focuses on the visual aspects of info presentation with some useful forays into areas such as proper requirements/measurements gathering and different user types. Little of the book is on the "back-end" or deep business needs/uses of informational dashboards.
I think the book is well written, wise, and should be required reading for any developer who finds themselves working on an information dashboard or other data presentation project. Readers looking for more business case background or data-wrestling info will need other books but should consider reading this one to make sure all their hardwork doesn't result in a turd of a final presentation/project deliverable.
Remove waste and focus on important stuff. The author does present good concepts, however I feel it could have been better.
If you are an excel/ report monkey like myself :) This book could be valuable to you. I need to churn you daily, weekly and monthly reports and this would help to present to stakeholders and management who tend to have very little time. Presenting the crux of the issue is always important.
At the end of the day, you still need to invest a lot of time, figuring out what is important, kinda like sitting down to think of your cv.
Stephen Few provides a great overview of dashboard design in this book. Chapter three is particularly good. In it, he lists thirteen common mistakes of dashboard design. Business intelligence software vendors and consultants should definitely read this. Like Edward Tufte before him, Few promotes elegant simplicity as a design goal for visual interfaces. He goes deeper than Tufte, however, and provides many more specific examples.
