    A good collection of different ideas in visual comms: e.g. using arrows, shapes, relative size, cartoons, distance, graphs, venn diagrams, pie charts, etc etc to depict concepts. However the standard of English left much to be desired, which greatly marred the reading the experience. Sentences were expressed rather inelegantly (e.g. there was a sentence that read something like, "A useful thing about __ is its many uses") and the grammar and phrasing were pretty bad in some places.

Also, if I had a dollar everytime I saw "led" (the past tense of "lead") being misspelled as "lead", I would be rich now.

    Not giving what was promised The book clearly says in the early pages that it is going to provide tools followed by examples to clarify how to efficiently use the tools. Not only the tools provided are ridiculous, the once that are not even taught anymore in business class, but the examples provided are not comprehensive and clear. This was literally wasted money. If you have a business background, this book is a complete waste of time.

    It's for the beginner who doesn't know how to create infographics. Use tools, diagrams, arrows etc. If you looking for an advanced detail, this might not fit for you.

    Почти бесполезная книга. Сам автор предлагает ее как подставку для кофе. Это будет ее лучшее примененние.

    Thought it was slightly useful - after reading Dan Roam's Show and Tell, I have downgraded the rating to 1 instead. Thought it was slightly useful - after reading Dan Roam's Show and Tell, I have downgraded the rating to 1 instead.
