Tufte-d morning

I was lazy this morning and exercised by jogging in place on an exercise mat, browsing/read through Edward Tufte's Beautiful Evidence. While Tufte's idea of sparklines (in chapter 2) is appealing, I am not nearly as impressed by this book as by his other volumes, espcially Visual Explanations. I am not yet sure why. Then again, I am only halfway through the book. Maybe another morning's exercise will reveal the reasons for my mild dissatisfaction.
