“Prof. Tufte has long been one of our store’s favorite authors, a writer whose intellect and books receive unanimous raves from those familiar with them. In one of the more unusual honors given him, The Utne Reader featured Tufte in a 1995 article ‘100 Visionaries Who Could Change Your Life,’ listing him with leading figures from politics, the media, and other walks of life. I’ve twice had the privilege of interviewing Tufte. The first time was in 1994, over sushi and sake, after a talk at our San Jose store in which he passed around his personal copy of an original Galileo manuscript. The second time was in January 1997, when his long-awaited third book came out (reviewed in this issue). I’ve meshed both interviews together for smoother ‘flow.'”
