About the Author:

Scott Murray is a designer who writes software to create data visualizations and other interactive experiences.  Scott is in the Learning Group at O'Reilly Media, has taught numerous courses and workshops on data visualization and creative coding.

He can be found at alignedleft.com and @alignedleft.

Review:

"There are few books that I'd call 'game-changers.' Interactive Data Visualization for the Web is one of them. It takes a topic that is obscure and hard to grasp for noncoders, and it transforms it into a delightful experience--full of clarity, fun, and insight. It's the book that I recommend to all of my students to get started with d3.js."

--Alberto Cairo, Knight Chair in Visual Journalism, University of Miami

"Scott Murray is pioneering a new approach to design--combining deep knowledge of both code and visual principles to create work that is at once extraordinarily beautiful, highly interactive, and coherently integrated. What's more, he's a teacher who generously shares his knowledge. And now, he's revised his wonderful book Interactive Data Visualization for the Web--a foundational text for designers and anyone else dealing with the coming onrush of data."

--Hugh Dubberly, Principal, Dubberly Design Office

"We have been using Scott's book in our CS171 Visualization course at Harvard for the past three years. It is, by far, the most comprehensive and best introduction to D3 out there. The tone of the book is conversational, and it is easily accessible by nonexperts and beginners. Our students like it, and I believe they benefit from having the materials presented in the order that Scott came up with. We are definitely looking forward to the next edition!"

--Hanspeter Pfister, An Wang Professor of Computer Science, Harvard University

"The first edition has simply been the most complete, effective, single source for learning D3 and visualization on the web from scratch. I have recommended it countless times."

--Erik Cunningham, Software Engineer, Twitter

"I can't think of a better way to understand D3. It's funny and engaging for a nonprogrammer, deep and detailed for an engineer, and filled with practical and visual bliss for the designer."

--Xaquín G.V., Visual Storyteller, formerly The Guardian, The New York Times, and National Geographic
