He covers topics like how data visualization can help communicate and persuade, the best ways to utilize color in charts, how the right visualization can reduce the time to insight, and the pros and cons of various types of charts. As Steve makes clear, knowing how to decipher, understand, and see the value of charts and dashboards will give you a graphic literacy that will help you thrive in today’s data-rich world.
