"I am a huge fan of the data journalism and visualization created by The New York Times. Some of their interactive visualizations are created with the open source JavaScript library D3 (Data-Driven Documents) created and maintained by NYT employee Mike Bostock. I have for a long time wanted to learn more about the techniques to create such visualization so I decided to spent a weekend reading Interactive Data Visualization for the Web." Full Review >

"Interactive Data Visualisation for the Web by Scott Murray puts you in the seat beside a data vis master as he takes you from zero to a solid comprehension of the thinking behind d3.js. It is well paced, perfectly suiting self-guided instruction and is full of helpful, well constructed samples. I would recommend this for novice to intermediate usage and seriously consider using it in my next information visualisation workshop." Full Review >
