Reading above my level…

…whatever that means. I just got Edward R Tufte’s “The Visual Display of Quantitative Information” in the mail today. I have a feeling that however hard I try, most of what he writes will be beyond my limited attention span. However, glancing through it I immediately caught what I think was a dig at one of my own personal heroes; Nigel Holmes, and a very obvious favoring of text-based charts, which may be defeating the purpose of my purchasing this particular book, which was to learn more about the simplification of visual information. Of course, that might be a good thing.
