I'm shocked to see people professing how great this book is for begineers and experts. If you are consultant, perhaps this helps you to learn, and communicate to others, WHAT the tool can do. Unfortunately, I was hoping to learn at least the basics of how to USE Tableau (with at least some lessons that include step-by-step details).
That said, this is my first foray into the Tableau universe. This was by far the most recommended book, and having read many books under the Wiley imprint, I did not hesitate to purchase it.
The Good: It is extremely detailed, with full-color illustrations. Plenty of coverage of just about every single feature imaginable. It also has references to other publications at the end of each chapter.
The Bad: Not a single step-by-step example provided. Chapter 3: "Building Your First Visualization" is a horribly misleading title, as it does not discuss how to build a visualization from the beginning (wouldn't that be how to build "Your First Visualization"???). All of the feature explanations are made using examples of charts that have ALREADY been built. Bizarre title, for sure. The Use Cases are pathetic - more like a high-level sales brochure of how Tableau was used to address some real-world questions.
If you have a wealth of experience in Tableau, and need a reference to help you with the specifics of features, then I would highly recommend this.
If you are looking to learn Tableau from the ground up, this manual is absolutely the wrong choice. There are NO working examples and NO links to data that would provide a way to recreate the feature illustrations. Extremely frustrating - It should be titled, "Tableau! A Dictionary of Features! This is Not for Learning!"
This book is okay. It tells you what tableau can do and all of its features but does not do a very good job giving direction on how to do it. For a brief overview of Tableau software this is a great book. But if you are looking to make advanced data visualizations and need detailed instructions on how, this is not the book for you.
It fully covers both Desktop and Server, theory, installation and use, Chapter 12, real customer solutions, showcases some great examples. This book will be with me in my consulting travels, and, will be recommended to all my clients!
Thank you, Dan, and every other contributor! Well done!
