Gareth Cook ’91, a Pulitzer prize winning journalist and Brown Physics Department alum, is the editor of a series that will appeal to anyone who likes their data beautiful: Best American Infographics. After the debut volume, Nature wrote: "Not only is it a thing of beauty it’s also a good read, with thoughtful explanations of each winning graphic and an entertaining forward by David Byrne." The new volume, with a forward by Nate Silver, will be out in October. More information is available on Gareth’s website.
