    Attempts to cover everything...

    The book covers all aspect of Flip Charts, starting from what sort of paper to use, type of markers, drawing stick figures and smileys with character and ending with how to store your charts and how to construct a flip-chart stand. It's a good book if you've just decided to 'do something' with flip-charts. However, it's as useful or not as much of a reference for the experienced user.

    For the more experienced user who's looking for more advanced techniques and ideas, I suggest 'The Big Book of Flip Charts' by Robert W. Lucas. If you need help in the 'art' department (in other words. If you can't draw a flower to save your life), consider 'A Picture's Worth 1,000 Words : A Workbook for Visual Communications' by Jean Westcott and Jennifer Hammond.
