Fundamentals of Data Visualization
This is an online preview of the book “Fundamentals of Data Visualization” to be published with O’Reilly Media, Inc. Completed chapters will be posted here as they become available.

The book is meant as a guide to making visualizations that accurately reflect the data, tell a story, and look professional. It has grown out of my experience of working with students and postdocs in my laboratory on thousands of data visualizations. Over the years, I have noticed that the same issues arise over and over. I have attempted to collect my accumulated knowledge from these interactions in the form of this book.

The entire book is written in R Markdown, using RStudio as my text editor and the bookdown package to turn a collection of markdown documents into a coherent whole. The book’s source code is hosted on GitHub, at https://github.com/clauswilke/dataviz. If you notice typos or other issues, feel free to open an issue on GitHub or send me a pull request. If you do the latter, in your commit message, please add the sentence “I assign the copyright of this contribution to Claus O. Wilke,” so that I can maintain the option of publishing this book in other forms.

16. If and when you find success, you might not recognize it. That's how it works. When you change your body, you change your mind. You aren't the same person you were when you first began.

15. Change can be painfully slow sometimes. Practice, practice, practice. Learn to love the plateau on the path to mastery.

14. When trying to change yourself, you are going to fail. Have compassion for yourself. Stay the course. Try, try again.

13. Being strong, being lean—it makes you stand taller. As ‪@jordanbpeterson‬ says, "With your shoulders back." It builds confidence. It's not because everyone else knows you're strength. It's because _you_ know it.

12. If you fear it, you should think hard about doing it. Fear is your signal for what matters—it's where failure would hurt. No risk, no reward. Not facing your fears is failure. So as ‪@jockowillink‬ says, "Get after it."

11. If you have kids, you owe it to them—and to your spouse—to invest in your health for the long haul. Fitness and diet provide long-term returns. Invest early, invest often, and invest wisely.

10. Though while they love you, your friends and family will likely resist you changing. Don't begrudge them. Don't judge them. Seek their support and keep on chugging even if they resist, nag, or tempt with cookies. (Cookies are okay from time to time.)

9. Your friends and loved ones love you the way you are. Thank God. Getting the six pack or the new PR is satisfying because it is hard work and will not and cannot replace lost relationships—which are also hard work. Invest in both.

8b. The best coaches will not accept your complacency. They will be the asshole you need to push your limits. These coaches have what ‪@nntaleb‬ calls "soul in the game"—you are their craft. Your failure is their failure. These coaches are brutal. E.g.: ‪@Martinberkhan‬

8a. Be careful who you find to help you. There are lots of gurus and coaches. Find a good teacher who will break your patterns and see where you fail and help you fix it. Really good coaches have a track record of clients who succeed—and stop being clients because of it.

7. If you've been trying a diet for awhile and it's not working, ask questions. Take a hard look. Are you tracking what needs to be tracked? Holding yourself accountable? What's hiding in your blind spots? Don't let failure fester. Evaluate, make changes, get help.

6. Get thee to a proper gym. Learn the major barbell lifts: Squats, deadlifts, rows, presses, and chins. These exercises are all you need to get as strong as an ox. Man? Woman? Young? Old? Doesn't matter. See ‪@CoachRippetoe‬ for tips.

5. CICO matters. You can fight it. You can trot out the rhetoric that the laws of thermodynamics don't apply. You can also miss the forest for the trees. Complex systems exist within context. CICO is context. Context matters.

4. Intermittent fasting is a powerful lever to pull because it works on two major dimensions: psychology and physiology. Physiological: hormone levels, energy intake Psychological: rewires Pavlovian responses to food/meal times, "chunks" decisions (Eatong becomes binary)
Justin Owings (‪@justinowings‬)

3. However, complex systems can be changed through methodical tinkering, observation, patience and perseverance. Don't obsess over goals. Work the system. (‪@ScottAdamsSays‬)
Justin Owings (‪@justinowings‬)

2. Our bodies are complex, dynamic systems with loads of dependencies and redundancies making cause and effect very difficult to understand, much less control. If you are expecting simple solutions to singularly change the system, you will fail. Count on it.

1. Your "can'ts" and "won'ts" are your greatest enemies—in most everything you do in life—and certainly when it comes to lifestyle, diet and fitness. What do you want? How are your thought patterns locked and stopping you from getting it? You can. We can do anything.
