In The Washington Post and The Economist

How Charts Lie will be released tomorrow in the United States, and there has been some buzz around it in the past few days. This week's The Economist includes a review by Alex Selby-Boothroyd,—it's on page 87 of the print magazine,—and The Washington Post has just published this interview written by Christopher Ingraham.

I love the title that The Economist chose: ‘Axes of evil: Lies, damn lies and charts,’ and also the fact that the review ends with the following note:

“Mr Cairo has sent a copy to the White House.”

(I did!)

You can find other recent interviews in Storytelling With Data (Cole has also written a review,) BIBrainz, Present Beyond Measure, and Data Viz Today. Época, the Brazilian magazine I used to work for years ago, has also published a review.

If you want to get a sense of the cone and content of the book, read its first 20+ pages for free.
