Are you concerned with displaying data effectively? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Colin Ware (Author), has done an outstanding job of writing a third edition of a book that tells you what the science of perception can tell you about visualization. Ware, begins with a very brief articulation of the nature of claims about sensory representations, with special attention paid to the work of perception theorist J.J. Gibson. In addition, the author deals with the basic inputs to perception. He then presents how the brain uses information to discover properties of the surfaces of objects in the environment. The author then, introduces the science of color vision, starting with receptors and trichromacy theory. He continues by describing the massively parallel processes, whereby the visual image is broken into elements of color, form and motion. In addition, the author looks at the process whereby the brain segments the world into regions and finds links, structure and prototypical objects. He then reviews both image-based and 3D-structure-based theories of object perception. The author then introduces different kinds of spatial clues and the ways we perceive them. Then, he addresses when visual and verbal presentation should be used and how the two kinds of information should be linked. The author continues by defining major interaction cycles. Finally, he outlines the cognitive system that is involved in thinking with visualizations. This most excellent book makes the design implications of research in perception clearer. Perhaps more importantly, this great book fully incorporates the modern view that perception is an active process in which every part of the visual system is retuned several times a second to meet the needs of the current visual task.
