Acknowledgments

A decade ago, Chris and I set out to create a company that bridged the gap between data and the people who might use it. This book draws from the many lessons we’ve learned from our discussions with colleagues and clients about presenting, visualizing, and sharing data.

I’m grateful and humbled by the energy and commitment demonstrated by all my colleagues at Juice. A special thanks to Ken Hilburn, James Lytle, and Michel Guillet for helping stretch our thinking along the way. Coming to work is always a joy when I get to collaborate with talented individuals including Djam Saidmuradov, Meghna Kukreja, Lindsay Conchar, Tim O’Guin, and Jennie Gemignani.

I’d like to thank Nathan Yau for inviting us into the Wiley family. His unflagging dedication to learning, sharing, and discussing all elements of data visualization is impressive and inspiring. As our project editor, Adaobi Obi Tulton has been a patient guide through the process.

I also appreciate...
