Today I am delighted to share details of a new special section of my website. The purpose of this site is to provide a wide range of companion resources to supplement the learning on offer in my newly published book.

A rather nice last-day-before-holidays package has just arrived at my door: the first pair of copies of my book straight off the printing press!

In order to sprinkle some star dust into the contents of my book I've been doing a few interviews with various professionals from data visualisation and related fields. These people span the spectrum of industries, backgrounds, roles and perspectives.
