**[StATS]:** **Presenting Numbers, Tables, and
Charts (April 15, 2005)**

I got a nice email from Sally Bigwood, one of the coauthors of

**Presenting Numbers, Tables, and Charts**Sally Bigwood, Melissa Spore. Oxford University Press - January 2003. [BookFinder4U link]

a book which I have not read, but which looks very interesting. She was commenting on my speech, Pitch the pie! Ban the bar!, which draws most of its resources from an article by A.S.C. Ehrenberg that appeared long ago in the American Statistician

**The Problem of Numeracy.**Ehrenberg ASC. The American Statistician 1981: 35(1); 67-71.

as well as two books that he wrote

**Data Reduction Analysing & Interpreting Statistical Data.**Ehrenberg ASC (1975) New York: John Wiley & Sons.**A Primer in Data Reduction.**Ehrenberg ASC (1982) New York: John Wiley & Sons.

It turns out that Sally Bigwood had had several discussions with Dr. Ehrenberg that helped in writing the book. She and Melissa Spore also have a website

**Plain Figures**. Bigwood S, Spore M. Accessed on 2005-04-15. www.plainfigures.com

that offers some interesting and helpful guidance.

If I ever get the time, I want to convert and update a presentation, Guidelines for Good Graphics, which is now a Word document, into HTML format.
