This was a great book for getting started with infographics. The first chapters help you understand the basics of infographics and remaining chapters have examples that you recreate with SAS Visual Analytics or even good ole’ SAS Programming. Travis does a great job introducing the topic and helping you get started on your journey. There’s lots of examples to get the wheels turning in your mind. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to add infographics as a skillset.
