I have recommended this to all of my staff that are new and lent it more than once in the last 3 months of ownership. At the time I barely understood what Data Discovery software was all about. We sat through the dog-and-pony shows of a few vendors, rejected one or two, and continued our search.
When the Tableau team demoed their product, we were blown away! We were blown away by what the product could do on the fly! Normally when we evaluate such products we narrow the choices down to a couple of contenders but Tableau was the clear winner. At this point many of us received evaluation versions of Tableau.
I was surprised at the vizzes I could immediately produce even at my newbie stage of exposure to this product. I immediately saw the possibilities and became a Tableau evangelist. At this point in time, I am trying to roll it out to our department. Tableau has the potential to replace reports that often required extensive programming on my part with workbooks containing more interaction, more detail, and overall better information and can do all of this much faster than before!
It is at this point in my Tableau experience that I read this book.
I really hoped that this would give me the tools to super-charge my implementation efforts. For one thing, much of this book has the flavor of a Tableau infomercial. The case studies had a real commercial feel to them and the illustrations were too small to evaluate properly.
These were for promotional of his firm as well as Tableau rather than instructional purposes. The middle section of the book gave a high level overview of the Server product.
The relevant audience of potential Server installers would be better served by referring to the technical manual. Using sample data downloaded from his overhyped, otherwise useless website; he shows the reader how to utilize the different features of Tableau.
If the reader get stuck as I did on a few occasions , you can reverse-engineer your way to enlightenment. It did a good job of showing why as well as how. He sprinkles the instruction with basics of data visualization best practices. What struck me in a bad way was, for content that instructs us how to use a product that uses data to enlighten us, there are some strange organization issues. The weirdest is having the introduction at the END of the book. The appendix section with the list of functions, you can skip.
Furthermore books of this type should have an index. It bugs me that I had to use my work copy of Tableau to read this book! This Is a New Book When I started this project a year ago, I thought that updating a book would be much less work than writing the first edition. Tableau has added so many new features since v8. The book is approximately pages longer than the first edition. Chapters Introduction, Connecting to Data and Building Views Due to the enhancements Tableau made to the connection interface, the Data Interpreter and calculations, these chapters have been extensively revised.
Chapter 5: Mapping Tableau has added Mapbox integration, which is discussed in this chapter the old way because I updated the chapter prior to the release of the Mapbox connector. I discuss the connector in a general way and deleted old content.
The chapter also covers new options related to the selector and the Map Option dialog updates that provide more control for the behavior of map panning and zooming. Tableau 9.
Chapter 7: Tips and Tricks I expanded this chapter to include additional tips and tricks that take advantage of new features added through v9. Chapter 8: Dashboards This entire chapter was updated, and the dashboard example was rebuilt and redesigned.
Every action invocation type and removal behavior is now covered in the example dashboard. In the first edition, these topics were covered in the dashboard chapter.
Both chapters provided expanded content and updated examples to help you understand and utilize Stories better. They also provide tips that can help you create better dashboard designs for mobile consumption.
