Back in January of 2014, with the help of my publisher Wiley, and my amazing co-author Stephanie Diamond, I was able to publish my first (and hopefully not last) ever book!

I admit that this was one of the most excruciating professional experiences in my life. Not only was I not prepared, but I ignored everyone who warned me about the time commitment.  Needless to say, I made it out alive and managed to put my heart into Chapter 7-11 to explain how a beginner should approach creating ‘Data Visualizations’.

I’ve gotten a lot of great feedback globally from readers who’ve purchased the book, but below is five things I wish I could tell each person before they read the book.

  • Rookies start from Chapter 1
  • Amateurs and Experts start from Chapter 7
  • The BI Dashboard Formula has four parts. In the book, we focus on Step 3: Prototyping. If you wish to learn more about the methodology click here.
  • If you have questions, email or ping me on social media (see links in the author bar).

Lastly, if there is anything that you wanted me to cover or expand upon, just leave it in the comments below.

I’m not sure when the book will be updated, but I will consider it for a blog post.
