I love data, math, stats and I love to visualize information. But Mathematica has always been, and remains the forbidden fruit to me (due to its cost). Therefore I was very glad to agree on an opportunity to review Mathematica Data Visualization. The book stood to its promise. I liked every page of it. The is book is packed with insightful examples to producing all (or most) the most common graphs and charts a data scientist may need in ones professional life. What I actually initially expected is to read the book for a few weeks, but finished it in one evening. Pity, I could not install comparable software on my Linux laptop to try the visualizations out myself. But I was touched by the sheer visualization offerings. Mathematica seems to be the only one that offers Paired Histograms, and I wasn't expecting it to feature a full support to Geo-visualizations (maps and paths).
Nazmus is a super skilled professional, he sure brings a lot to the table, I mean to the reader of the book. I would like to have another book from him on the actual programming in Mathematica with a real project coverage.
It is a very high quality book with many reference links to other relevant literature which will enable you to expand your knowledge further. Good investment at ~ $22 in my view and it actually can be used as an evaluation to using Mathematica in your next project or research.
Again, good book, 5 out of 5.
Disclaimer: I received a free ebook version of this book for review purposes from the publisher.
