I haven't attended, but that hasn't stopped me from sending folks to the
course. "The Visual Display of Quantitative Information" is a book I
recommend highly, and give away about as frequently as Steve McConnell's
From what I gather, though, the courses focus more on delivering effective
presentations than the books do. One neat thing they cover in the course is
the Gettysburg PowerPoint presentation. Enjoy:
