    This book really opened my mind to how data can be used. I spent four long years studying statistics, and we never covered the important lessons this book contains - how to use data to inspire change. Well worth reading.

    The book is fantastic and I have started to look at data differently. I'm a researcher in world's top marketing research agency and I recommend this book. But since the book is very expensive, I'll suggest you to visit to Author's blog first in order to understand whether this book is right for you.If you're thinking to try a sample of Kindle first then you'll never have an idea because the samples finishes at the point where benefit is unknown. I'll suggest the author to end the sample before Chapter 1. That is the best point when I was motivated enough to finish the book asap.Furthermore, in the end, the book tells one example of complete storytelling with data using only one graph only. The problem is that one graph is not practical for any researchers/analyst. Because researchers/analyst are dealing with plethora of data on regular basis. I'll suggest Cole (author) to take at least one case study as a complete project and make a complete case study of complete data and make a deck of graphs out of it. For example, take data of "usage and attitude" study and tell how we should so storytelling with data out of it. This case study can post at her blog and only reader of this book can have free access ot the case study.I wonder why I'm the first person to write review, Why people are not buying it. Perhaps I haven't read a book like that before and the ideas in the book is completely new more me.Cole, I wish you all the best and thank you to tell me the path to tell a story with the data.

    The book is light and readable: I read this book in practically one sitting. It is a concise an informative summary of what you need to do to present data in an engaging manner. The methodology presented is sensible and uncomplicatedIt would get 5 stars from me if there was an appendix with more detail on exactly how to produce some of the graphs shown in excel but the book fulfills its purpose in describing what is to be done and encouraging the reader to get to know their tools to achieve what they need

    I had to return the book. Many pages with bad printing quality: charts blurred or lack of color. I bought to seller called Sio.I just bought it again to Amazon Warehouse, hopefully this time with good printing quality.
