No better book on the power of Visual Thinking

We all know a picture is worth a 1000 words and accept it too. However, it is a totally different matter to go about conceptualizing and establishing a easily understandable and executable way of substituting words with pictures and images. It is a matter of being able to walk the talk. In this book, Dan Roam just excels himself with one of the most easily understandable methods of going about showing the power of images and pictures versus drab, dull words. And Dan goes about the book with a tongue in cheek sense of humor which only strengthens what he sets about teaching. His sketches and drawings are so well thought of and rendered that they do completely replace the words. In my line of work, I do use a lot of visual elements to teach concepts (financial analysis, incidentally) but Dan in his book tells you why you should do it and what it will do to the message you are trying to deliver. The thinking and conceptualization that emerges after applying his concepts are so rich and varied that this should be considered an expression for creativity and brainstorming. If you ever doubted that pictures deliver more meaning and learning than mere words, go buy this book. You will be a convert for sure.
