Ah, my least favorite subject: charts. LOL I'm not much of a numbers person and I always find it interesting how difficult it is for the average person to create meaningful charts. Charts are like websites: they can be flashy or plain; they can tell a story succinctly or they can bury insights in a jumble of noise; they can be honest or they can be misleading.

Do you know Mynda Treacy? I learned a lot from her site, mainly, that I didn't want to take the time to learn about data visualization. 📈📉🤢

Great edition as always. A follow up "request"...😁 for those of us self taught data enthusiasts, with some data I always wonder what type of chart is better for what set of data...
