Abstract: Information visualization is a rapidly evolving field with a growing volume of scientific literature and texts continually published.To keep abreast of the latest developments in the domain, survey papers and state-of-the-art reviews provide valuable tools formanaging the large quantity of scientific literature. Recently a survey of survey papers (SoS) was published to keep track ofthe quantity of refereed survey papers in information visualization conferences and journals. However no such resources existto inform readers of the large volume of books being published on the subject, leaving the possibility of valuable knowledgebeing overlooked. We present the first literature survey of information visualization books that addresses this challenge bysurveying the large volume of books on the topic of information visualization and visual analytics. This unique survey addressessome special challenges associated with collections of books (as opposed to research papers) including searching, browsingand cost. This paper features a novel two-level classification based on both books and chapter topics examined in each book,enabling the reader to quickly identify to what depth a topic of interest is covered within a particular book. Readers can usethis survey to identify the most relevant book for their needs amongst a quickly expanding collection. In indexing the landscapeof information visualization books, this survey provides a valuable resource to both experienced researchers and newcomers inthe data visualization discipline.
