Come on Rob, are your eyes going bad? There is clearly 32.47% of that pie left.

Mr Fews book, Information Dashboard Design: The Effective Visual Communication of Data explains why pie charts are lousy really well. Its a great read for those of us who are less design astute.

Thanks Geoff & Aaron, that's great.

And thank you too Steve. I've shared coffee with him before, and can thoroughly recommend his books to anyone who considers that pie charts are worthwhile. He's back in Australia in November, but I doubt I'll see him this time, as I don't think Adelaide's in his itinerary.
