Serif and Sans Serif Tyepface for reading

I was in a discussion with a young designer about whether serif or sans serif is easier to read.  I was about to go over the pros and cons, but then I found this info-graphic on serif vs sans-serif.  Brilliant.  I’ve made a copy of the graphic below.  I think it covers the subject completely.

Serif or Sans Serif

Thank you UrbanFonts!

My suggestion is to use a fancy serif font for H1 and H2 headers and titles, but use a nice big sans-serif font for the text.  Blockquotes can go either way.
