Bret Victor's Review:

This is my five-star list. This  are my favorite things in all the world. A few of the works have had an extraordinary effect on my life or way of thinking. They get a sixth star.

Jeff Atwood's Review:

Information is beautiful. And so is a well-designed GUI.

You don't need to own all four books in the series unless you're a completist (or a masochist, I suppose), but the first two are essential.

Chris Sells has some interesting insight on the Tufte books based on a Tufte seminar he attended in June 2004.
