Classic Data Books

We’re a little biased in this category, but these are the books on our desks that we refer to all the time.

Data Fluency – Thinking about changing how your team or organization works with data?This is the book for you.

Storytelling with Data – This one already feels like a classic. It provides simple, clear guidance on chart usage and storytelling. Hard not to reference it in the midst of a project.

Weapons of Math Destruction: How Big Data Increases Inequality and Threatens Democracy – This is the book that keeps us grounded. Despite how much we think data is delicious and fun its serious too.

The Man Who Lied to His Laptop: What We Can Learn About Ourselves from Our Machines – A seminal read on learning about interactions between humans and machines.

Visualize This: The FlowingData Guide to Design, Visualization, and Statistics – Nathan Yau’s book that teaches us something new every time we pick it up.

The Truthful Art: Data, Charts, and Maps for Communication – We love all of Alberto’s books, but this one is our favorite. Wonderful examples throughout the book.
