    I usually don't use the star system unless I can give four or five stars but in this case I am making an exception in order to counter balance the trend I see in the data about this book Scroll through the reviews and you will see that people who know how information visualization is supposed to be done are giving this book bad reviews and only one or two stars The enthusiastic five star reviews are coming from folks who simply enjoyed looking at the pictures in the book Their enjoyment of what experts identify as shoddy work illustrates pun intended its danger Why do I say the work is shoddy? Not for aesthetic reasons Although I personally found the relentless use of flat graphics in saturated colors to be visually exhausting that's a matter of taste But the use of graphics to visualize data is not just a matter of taste it's also a matter of integrity Integrity in infographics begins with the selection of the data to be visualized As the old programming phrase goes garbage in garbage out If the data are questionable then nothing truly useful can come of putting them into visually interesting configurations If the data are false then those visual depictions might even be dangerously misleadingMcCandless wants us to believe for example that freak lawnmower accidents are responsible for deaths than second hand smoke Is that really true? Look closer and you see that the freak lawnmower accidents are allegedly common than deaths due to assault Really? Maybe Let's check the sources The Guardian Time Magazine and Google Yes the author of a book published by a reputable publisher makes an error no high school teacher would allow a student to make citing a search engine rather than a reliable source of information Of course using Google we can find all sorts of facts including tobacco industry propaganda aimed at low balling the rate of death due to second hand smoke Who knows upon which of those cyber facts upon which McCandless relied while constructing this diagram? Not us because he doesn't tell us And so there's no way to know whether the facts upon which the whole ballgame depends are accurate or notIt's not just that one chart Over and over again McCandless attributes the data in his infographics to Google Wikipedia or other unreliable andor unintelligible sources Readers who have studied statistics information design or related subjects know to look for the sources see that they are shoddy and consequently understand that the graphic cannot be taken seriously But naive readers see pretty pseudo scientific charts and assume that they are being accurately informed as well as entertainedIt gets worse The graphics themselves are sometimes constructed in misleading or nonsensical ways thereby further diminishing their integrity and utility Why does this matter? We're swimming in data that might be useful in solving the many complex problems that confront our families communities and countries Information visualization can be useful in two ways 1 to accessibly illustrate and disseminate what we already know and 2 to figure out new things by looking for patterns and relationships among data Neither of these purposes is served by accustoming readers to infographics that lack the most basic integrity
