review The Grammar of Graphics (Statistics and Computing) mizunowaverider.us à 4 Free download Download × PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook à mizunowaverider.us Presents a uniue foundation for producing almost every uantitative graphic found in scientific journals. I boought this book because I am getting increasingly interested in data visualization I ve played around with ggplot2 and went to Edward Tufte s seminars and eventually found my way to this bookAs the other reviewers mention this is NOT a how to book It s a much deeper fundamnetal treatment of how data and graphics connect and how we represent them So it s not as much a useful book except insofar as it changes the way you put together your next graphThis book crystalized a lot of concepts I already understood though only vaguely and intuitively Like a legend and an an axis are really the same thing and that a stacked bar and a pie chart are identical except for the coordinate system usedIt s uite a dense slog to read this book so I recommend you pick it up and read a few pages here and there and follow through on the issues that catch your interestIt s not for everyone but I suspect it could make anyone communicate better through graphs

Most of what other reviewers say has factual accuracy But first I must say that the subset of people who enjoy CLEVELAND WILLIAM S s works will enjoy the Grammar of Graphics bookSorry but people who enjoy TUFTE are not potential candidates for this book because Tufte has way too little to say about graphics despite his books lectures which ultimately are about for Tufte Tufte s main thing is his admonition don t do chart junk followed by his second favorite thing join with him and disparage the cognitive style of PowerPoint The former is true but is not terribly subtle As for the second the tool of PowerPoint need not be used in the boring cognitive style with bullets and branding I for one have made plenty of PowerPoint presentations totally unlike theseThe summary of subsets of folks William S Cleveland followers yes you ll love this book those who mistake Tufte for the ultimate graphical guru probably will find this book too much Note that the author of the Grammar of Graphics book literally says how Cleveland wins the citations contest in his book No surprise because Cleveland has made many creative developments for statistical graphics and has also studied graphical perception As just ONE of a myriad of examples residuals are very badly mis read by our perception when there is a steeply sloped curve residual in y direction may be very large but we see only a very much shorter perpendicular distanceFinally in fairness Tufte has had two good ideas but only two compared to Cleveland s several dozen Tufte s tics at data for x and y separate marginal distributions essentially 1 D scatterplots made by tics and Tufte s white grid run thru of bar plots are his two contributions of any substanceOK Thanks for bearing with my review which thus far has covered the Cleveland and Tufte subsets of readers Time for the Grammar of Graphics book character itself without context of being a Cleveland reader or a Tufte ReaderIf you have not experienced reading Cleveland s books Elements of Graphing Data andor Visualizing Data I admit that this book will be difficult for youThe above point aside you should know like other reviewers said that this book is not a how to Nor is it like Cleveland s books chock full of guideline principles There are plenty of principles in the book but with its size the CONCENTRATION of principles to pages of text is lowTHE BEST PERSPECTIVE ON THIS BOOK The best perspective is to not sweat consuming every little detail Especially skip all the formalisms even though this is ostensibly the topic of the book Instead just enjoy This is one book definitely to apply your highlighter to Forget the formalisms completely Concentrate on the important points made throughout but you ll need to highlight them If you come to the book from Cleveland William S it will be easier for you to spot the important points Just don t think you have to learn details and formalismsOne tip Cleveland reader or not whenever there is any text suggesting a perspective that text may well be calling for your highlighter not always but oftenGo for principles perspectives and ignore formalisms You ll be at ease and enjoy the bookIf you think you might do both William S Cleveland s books AND the Grammar of Graphics book no uestion do Cleveland first Elements of Graphing Data basic and Visualizing Data advanced statistical uestions addressed graphicallyPS I don t recall if other reviewers mentioned it but Wilkinson author of Grammar of Graphics is creator of the SYSTAT statistical software package
