“In Storytelling with Data, Cole Nussbaumer has created an of-the-moment complement to the work of data visualization pioneers like Edward Tufte. She’s worked at – and with – some of the most data-driven organizations on the planet, as well as some of the most mission-driven, data-free institutions. In both cases, she’s helped sharpen their messages, and their thinking.”
