A good guide book in the style of a holiday guide book that has lots of things you need to see. As long as you are happy about JavaScript, HTML and CSS then this is a good way to discover D3.js. 

Ian Stirk gave a rating of 4.5 to D3.js By Example (Packt Publishing) saying:

 If you want to learn data visualization using the D3 framework, I can heartily recommend this instructive example-led book.
