David McCandless: The beauty of data visualization

I first read McCandless's, Information is Beautiful, in college. I loved that it was a book full of knowledge but with comparatively few words. In his TED talk, McCandless states that well made graphics facilitate "information compression" and explains how this compression can help us better understand the world. Additionally, he shows some compelling reasons we should be more worried about ratios and not absolute numbers.
