        Comments about oreilly Intermediate D3.js:

        I thoroughly recommend this series of video tutorials. They are very logically organized building material up at the right rate. New concepts are explained with clean and clear examples that are easy to follow along on your own machine. I particularly valued Scott's ability to help the viewer develop a fuller understanding of the d3 process and how to use the console and DOM to really understand what's going on with the code. I have already recommended this tutorial series to my students and encourage others to take it.

          I read Scott's book, but watching him explain things in real time exponentially increased my understanding of D3. So many concepts clicked into place viewing him describe various processes step by step. The examples are masterfully broken up to build upon the previous ones making it very easy to follow and isolate. And his laid back style makes scary D3 extremely approachable. Highly, highly, highly, recommend this. Thanks Scott!
