No matter what your actual job title, you are—or soon will be—a data worker. Every day, at work, home, and school, we are bombarded with vast amounts of free data collected and shared by everyone and everything from our co-workers to our calorie counters. In this highly anticipated follow-up to The FunctionalArt—Alberto Cairo's foundational guide to understanding information graphics and visualization—the respected data visualization professor explains in clear terms how to work with data, discover the stories hidden within, and share those stories with the world in the form of charts, maps, and infographics.

The Truthful Art explains : The role infographics and data visualizations play in our daily lives ; Basic principles of data and scientific reasoning that anyone can master ; How to become a better critical thinker ; Step-by-step processes that will help you evaluate any data visualization ; How to create and use effective charts, graphs, and data maps.
