The authors have included statistics commonly used in analyses to make the book as useful as possible for researchers and students and have organized the chapters according to the complexity of the statistic. Each chapter is devoted to a different statistic and provides a variety of examples of how data can best be displayed. Included for each statistic is a "Play it Safe" table that illustrates the most comprehensive formatting options.

Quick-reference checklists for general and specific types of figures summarize important points to help readers save time in deciding on the best way to present figures. The book alsoincludes chapters on how to present conference posters and presentations. This definitive resource for creating figures and presentations will help ensure that ever visual display of data is accurate and effective.
