Tableau 8: The Official Guide teaches readers how to create and distribute dynamic, feature-rich data visualizations and highly interactive dashboards. It provides hands-on instruction and best practices to help people meet their business intelligence objectives and drive better decision making. The eBook version and DVD that comes with purchase of the hard copy book also include videos and sample Tableau workbooks.

"We do our very best to provide plenty of online training materials and resources but sometimes an old-fashioned book can be a great supplement to help advance your knowledge," said Elissa Fink, Chief Marketing Officer at Tableau Software. "Peck does an excellent job of walking readers through the user interface and explaining relevant terms and foundational Tableau concepts. It's a complementary resource that every Tableau customer will find useful."

Peck comprehensively covers the latest version of the Tableau 8 suite of products. He walks readers through Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server, and the company's newest hosted product, Tableau Online. A handy function reference guide in the appendix helps readers navigate calculated fields. The eBook provides videos that bring the book's examples to life and invites viewers to follow along in real-time.

Peck will have a booth at TCC13 and his book will be available for purchase in the Tableau Bookstore at the event. Tableau 8: The Official Guide is also available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
