StATS: Presenting Numbers, Tables, and Charts (April 15, 2005)

I got a nice email from Sally Bigwood, one of the coauthors of

a book which I have not read, but which looks very interesting. She was commenting on my speech, Pitch the pie! Ban the bar!, which draws most of its resources from an article by A.S.C. Ehrenberg that appeared long ago in the American Statistician

as well as two books that he wrote

It turns out that Sally Bigwood had had several discussions with Dr. Ehrenberg that helped in writing the book. She and Melissa Spore also have a website

that offers some interesting and helpful guidance.

If I ever get the time, I want to convert and update a presentation, Guidelines for Good Graphics, which is now a Word document, into HTML format.
