"This book will inform and inspire. It has simple design tips to make work look sharp" - "Business Executive" "Jon Moon's book provides a comprehensive and convincing guide to making all sorts of information clear and compelling." - "Student Accountant April 2008" Information is power, as the saying goes. But the author argues that clarity and impact are the key and that in too many cases, the presentation of information completely fails to inform and influence. Moon presents some relatively simple ideas and principles that can be used to improve the writing and structuring of reports, produce better slides that engage an audience or design tables that communicate points clearly and concisely. He emphasises that clear work gets results. Documents and analyses get read, people absorb points faster and reach better decisions more quickly. - "People Management January 08"
