Hi Mo I also highly recommend Stephen Few’s Information Dashboard Design: The Effective Visual Communication of Data. If you're not able to get a copy soon, read my extensive review of his book on UXmatters: http://www.uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2007/04/book-review-information-dashboard-design.php The review summarizes the content in the book rather than just judging its quality. It's a marvelous book. One the publisher should never allow to go out of print. It should be a classic among UX design professionals. Just checked on Amazon. It's still available for sale new. On the O'Reilly site, too. Regards, Pabini

Thanks. Got it - (Information Dashboard Design) - . Plus sourcing others from "Edward Tufte" as well. Unfortunately it seems "Few's" and other such books have been out of print (at least in Canada). Which I tend to put on "lack of financial desire for the big box stores"... what sells. Ironic, because here in Toronto, Canada have a big design / usability / engineering community. I guess Harry Potter sells more titles, However, I plan to get what I can get from "Amazon used"...I plan to get the whole lot from both authurs....
