    Easily a favorite technical book of mine It s rare I read a book on the power of data coding to do good in the world This book did an excellent job of interviewing reporters and developers at the Guardian, ProPublica, La Nation, the Associated Press to get a true look at how data and data visualization can be used effectively in journalism The book offered a perfect blend of case studies, technical recommendations, and use considerations I walked away with a lot interest in data visualization and a better understanding of the tools needed to get better at it.

    The par tic u larly well conceived infographic that illus trates the story arc of this hand book star ted my rela tion ship with the book on a very pos it ive tone The dia gram provides a superb roadmap and gives me as a self perceived visual thinker an indic a tion of where I can derive the most value from it It also describes the gen eral intent of the book itself and I give it a very strong recom mend a tion Accord ing to the accom pa ny ing nar rat ive it was con ceived and ini tially con struc ted in a 48 hours ses sion at MozFest 2011 and then refined online amongst a large group of con trib ut ors The Data Journ al ism Hand book an early release ver sion is what I have been provided with and am review ing is aimed to give you a sense of how to get star ted with data journ al ism and where to look if you want to go fur ther Examples and tutori als serve to be illus trat ive rather than exhaust ive So why I am read ing this Nat ural inquis it ive ness of course, but also to explore this concept of telling a story with num bers or with other forms of data Pro fes sional and per son ally it interests me and I found this col lec ted volume a treas ure trove of real world examples, pithy obser va tions and real nug gets of emer ging thought.This instruc tional and thought provoking book looks to the a rap idly emer ging sec tor of the media engaged around present ing, inter pret ing and most innov at ively devel op ing and provid ing inter act ive tools for work ing with pub licly avail able data as part of a new media ini ti at ive It is not a nor mally struc tured sort of book In this I mean it is far less struc tured than most It has a solid coher ence around the gen eral theme and if you take a look at the story arc infographic I men tioned above you will see that it does fol low a determ ined path, but there is a less clearly nar rat ive structure.To extract just one aspect that I found par tic u larly sup port ive of the simple need for this sort of hand book is the state ment that Data journ al ism is about mass data lit er acy This looks to a lar ger cul tural change that is tak ing place in the audi ence and the rapid ity of this change I have found the Guard ian and the New York Times par tic u larly not able in this and a ref er ence to the Guardian s data pro cessing exper i ence is one of the case stud ies explained as part of the In the News room sec tion The Guard ian has been very for ward think ing but also very open about how they have approached this data journ al ism revolu tion and absence of such dis cus sion would have been almost unfor give able in a book such as this so they checked the box but import ably put it into a lar ger con text of exper i ences from around the world.The In the News room sec tion is largely case driven The Get ting Data sec tion moves towards an inter rog at ive ques tion and answer format Under stand ing Data is prob ably the most didactic sec tion of the book and has the strongest nar rat ive It com bines some of the question answer with a very solid pro cess approach to data ming ling and pro cessing for journ al istic use Present ing and Deliv er ing Data is the most spec u lat ive of the sec tions and explores ways in which this is being done today but poses many inter est ing ideas that are meant to inspire All in all the vari ety of the sec tions keeps it very fresh and engaging.This hand book is lav ishly illus trated and well dir ec ted to URLs for fur ther dis cus sion I found that the ques tions posed in the ongo ing dis cus sion were clearly iden ti fied and the entire hand book takes the form of this ongo ing dis cus sion rather than a dir ect nar rat ive I found that this worked for me and I ten ded to move back and forth through the hand book attrac ted to spe cific ques tions and con sumed the book piece meal I expect most people will find this the most use ful way to con sume it As it is an assemblage of con tri bu tions from a wide ran ging group, the style of prose does tend to vary some what between sec tions, but I am struck that it lends a sur pris ing fresh ness Most import antly, this hand book is very com pre hens ive and cur rent As with any of these prin ted works in emer ging fields the chal lenge will be to keep it cur rent over time, but I have sense that this one in par tic u lar will age well due to its richly diverse sourcing and reflection.Data Journ al ism truly extends bey ond the realms of journ al ism as it is tra di tion ally defined I would posit that as con sumers of the new inter act ive present a tions increas ingly found in the new media, we are both con sumers and also cre at ors of our own journ al ism Cur at ors journ al ists that inter act and cre ate our own inter pret a tions and tis is what inter ested me in the out set to take a look at this book I found it a fas cin at ing read, dealign with cur rent mat ters, present ing enga ging examples and gen er ally test ing an emer ging field with crit ical atten tion I would recom mend it for a wide vari ety of audi ences and prin cip ally for any one who finds them selves immersed in this new inter act ive data driven media world in which we find ourselves.
