CHAPTER 6

The Slides' Contrast

IN THIS CHAPTER

  • Action diagrams vs. static diagrams
  • Using diagrams to compare and make meaning
  • Avoiding tables and what to do if you can't
  • The doom of charts: chartjunk and default settings
  • Not lying with statistics

In Chapter 5 you read about illustrations, the purpose of which is to inspire emotions or to give quick hints to both the speaker and the audience about the contents of the speech. But what if you don't want to entertain or impress, but rather want to explain and persuade? This chapter deals with the basics of infographics, the art of visual explanations. A special focus of this chapter is using charts to produce powerful visual comparisons.
